who is protiled in both spiritual and physical torm. A masked shaman presides over a clinically ordered city, a naked guardian takes a rather surprised mechanic into his contidence and an angel discusses the meaning ot lite with a tield worker in lront oi the nuclear power plant. In strong straighttorward terms, Robertson's hybrid style declares the modern world as tar trom a superstition tree zone. 0n the eve ot the 21st century, tor all our advances in city and science, medieval mystery and tears are still around.
Robertson is essentially a printer. Like the medieval artists (most ot them German) who have intluenced both subject and technique, he is conscious 01 his art as craft and the print as illustration. But here Robertson also makes his debut as a painter. Because Glasgow Print Studio was not tully operational this year while he was preparing tor the exhibition, he was obliged to work, tor the first time since he left Glasgow School 01 Art, in oils. The results have turned that accident 01 tate into a positive step tor the paintings neatly combine the precision and llat quality ol 3 print with a glow ot colour and subtle texture new to Robertson‘s work.
This is a mature lirst exhibition with roots in tribal beliet, German art, industrial history and medieval perspective, all lrom the viewpoint ot a Glasgow artist in the eighties. (Alice Bain)
