Currently on view at Catharine Clark Gallery (CCG), San Francisco is “Sic Transit Gloria Mundi,” a solo exhibition of works by Walter Robinson. The dedicated media room will feature John Slepian’s work, “Art is Not an Object” (Sculpture). Loosely translated as “Thus Passes the Glory of the World,” “Sic Transit Gloria Mundi” is about the fleeting nature of material objects and the human experience. The very personal and idiosyncratic work in “Sic Transit Gloria Mundi” reflects Robinson’s exploration of aging, and an accounting of his life, while looking into a future of income inequality, diminishing resources and physical decline. Walter Robinson views his life trajectory in parallel with the path of America’s growth, expansion and decline. In his words, “This work takes stock of where America and I have been, what we have seen and learned, and searches for where we will go.”
“Sic Transit Gloria Mundi” is on view through March 29, 2014.
