"Bed sheets serve as an almost universal accessory to elemental manifestations of desire. Also amusing is the thought that bed sheets are horizontal in the dark and hung vertical to dry in the sunshine. Nature is horizontal and culture is vertical, and a patterned bed sheet introduces the whimsical curlicues of the social imagination into the horizontal biological realm. The bed sheet is also a metaphor for the continuous field of consciousness."

—Walter Robinson, 2017

"Robinson's exploitations of pop imagery succeed by failing the Pictures Generation shibboleth of ironic detachment. In his paintings, the louche sexual glamour of penny dreadfuls and the temptations of booze and junk food are palpable—only the more so, nostalgically, now that the artist is abstemious. Robinson is a Manet of hot babes and a Morandi of McDonald's French fries and Budweiser beer cans, magnetized by his subjects as he devotes his brush to generic painterly description."

—Peter Schjeldahl, in The New Yorker, September 26, 2016
