Music ---- both its intangible structure and its physical apparatus ---- has always informed the art of Ellington Robinson, a painter whose work has included a sculptural installation of wall--mounted turntables.
For the Washington native’s solo exhibition “Supreme Magnetic,” which opens Saturday with a reception from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Project 4, you’ll find charred record--album sleeves, along with other detritus, resampled into a visual stew of paint and found--object sculpture that addresses the theme of geopolitical boundaries, memory and identity. Robinson’s subject isn’t music, per se, but mapping, as a metaphor for what he calls the “political containers” of nations and states.
