Ramon Robertson has been working as an artist in Auckland, New Zealand since arriving here in October 2011. Prior to this he lived and worked in Glasgow, Scotland working as an artist, designer and tertiary lecturer.
In 1992 he graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a BA Honours Degree in Fine Art Sculpture and in 1997 completed a MA in Interior Design at Manchester Metropolitan University for which he undertook sculpture and installation projects related to interiors and architecture.
Ramon Robertson’s artwork engages with aspects of architecture and urbanisation. Mass production and standardisation of objects is also a focus, as well as a closer look at our human existence in our living environments. Themes linking to human nature, conditioning and behaviour in the city are also concepts explored in his work.
The sculptures Robertson produces are small to medium in size and are often figurative. Plaster and concrete have been the materials of choice for their inert, yet versatile qualities. For the past few years, he has been experimenting with bronze, trying to obtain a similarly utilitarian, or industrial feel to that of the concrete and plaster works.
