Robertson studied at Glasgow School of Art, and continues to live and work in Glasgow, Scotland. A Master Printer at Glasgow Print Studio, he maintains his interest in traditional fine art printmaking, but it is the research, development and application of new technologies, specifically digital imaging and printing that has most influenced his current professional practice.
Engagement with varied interdisciplinary projects has provided continued inspiration and evolution to ideas and practice. Diagrammatic representations and their related iconography have motivated recent works that explore relevant myth, history, geology and environment. He uses sources including textbooks on natural history, early and contemporary printed maps, scientific/technological imagery and cultural icons.
His work has been exhibited at the Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts and the Keeper’s House at the Royal Academy of Arts, London.
