Robertson’s ‘Lightboxes’ are a modern canvas where the artist is able to bring film quality and dimension to enrich the storytelling narrative of the image.

Colours become sumptuous and vivid, monochrome works take on a graphic quality. The artworks pulse with energy and vibrate like a silent interlude.

The rose becomes the constant narrative, the artist uses this symbolism of peace, creating a focal point in each artwork.  

In the lightbox series, the rose becomes a literal beacon of light and hope in the midst of the swirling human expression of colour, texture, clothing, hands, skin, nails, freckles, scars, tattoos, hair, jewellery and the environment they are photographed in.

Whether he’s photographing a global superstar or a beggar, Robertson will often partially cut out the subjects face, redacting the importance usually placed on the individuals facial communication. 

The artist encourages the viewer to see past the curated ‘masks’ we present to the world. Playing with taking the focal point away from the face, guiding it towards the rose and the expression of un-curated raw emotion, reverence and often awkwardness of the subjects hands. 

Robertson’s works challenge the viewer to see past the long held traditions of portraiture. This in order to bring an awareness to humankinds interconnectedness in our hopes and dreams, irrespective of the beliefs and societal constraints we impose on ourselves and each other.
