'Drawing is needed. It sets me on the way to try to understand. Understanding is unachievable, so I have to keep on trying – to keep on drawing.'
iota welcomes you to this third solo show of new work by Colin Robertson. He mentions needing 'triggers' to start drawing, and cites 'things seen- figures, or parts of figures- adverts on a van- works by other artists- the dark line of the sea where it met the sky- the perspective on a slope of cobbled concrete blocks under a motorway...Photos in the newspapers- of female pop singers, pop groups and of women soldiers from North Korea marching (goose-stepping) on parade. A doodle where I let music activate my hand and pen.'
Robertson was born in Glasgow 1936, graduated in Dundee and travelled the world. He lives and walks and works in Scotland. Turn the image, see this work.
