Iain Robertson

As an Artist/Tutor creating courses for the School, I draw from my own experience and questioning of my own practice. I try to open up a way into contemporary abstraction for practitioners who come prepared to engage with sometimes difficult concepts and hopefully take away ideas and more questions for their own practice. We can all benefit from being in this space together.

Chance as an inevitable event through the painting process and as a planned strategy, in picture making. Gravity, pouring, gesture, intention and no intention. Music and music memory informing attitude and style a formal approach to abstraction helping to find a more emphatic use of my developed abstract language. Continuing to explore new narratives in colour and shape.

Abstract Art Experience 30/03/2020


This mentoring course for practicing artists is led by two highly experienced contemporary, abstract artists. The tutors’ expertise in the language of abstract art will provide a productive, critical approach to the development of your practice, through in-depth tutorials and group discussion. Working in a supportive studio environment, you will focus on ideas and processes that enable you to gain understanding and confidence in your own discoveries.
