Collection: Sculptures

Robertson’s sculptures and objects are provocatively playful twists on the narrative of Peace and Love that underpin his practice and artworks. 

He predominantly works with cast crystal, neon, gold leaf, hawk wings, resin, one-way mirrors, and highly polished stainless steel.

Some instances incorporating iconic emotive social symbols of conflict into his commentary, such as his police-issue Glock pistols and tank barrels.

GUNS AND ROSES

The cast crystal collection.

In Robertson’s latest sculptural series ‘Guns and Roses’, the artist explores the polarities, the ‘tension between’. 

Casting both symbolic forms of the gun and the rose in lead crystal, Robertson playfully forges a union of two symbolic opposites to exist within a solitary form. The infinite now contained within the finite.  

The impermeant fragility of a rose. The physical force of a loaded gun.

Peace / Violence - In Exploration of polarities and interdependence to exist. 

Light / Dark - Day does not exist without night, joy without sorrow, life without death, peace without non-peace.

Casting both symbolic forms of the gun and the rose in lead crystal, Robertson playfully forges a union of two symbolic opposites to exist within a solitary form. The infinite now contained within the finite.  

The rose, cast from the very rose that His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Arch Bishop Desmond Tutu have both held and blessed, the object takes on a permanence and density, the Glock gun takes on a fragility and transparency.

Both shattering into a thousand pieces if dropped. The fragility of the human construct of peace. 

The artists belief that the key to peace lies in your hands.
