George Robertson

Originally I painted in a photo realist style, the compositions being surreal/pop. I then spent time restoring painted antiques, this involved studying the style of the original painting and emulating it, this helped me to broaden the ways I approach my work. Twelve years ago I moved to a rural location and found the local landscape an inspiration. My style has loosened up although still realistic. Some recent works look abstract but are actually of things in the world that are hard to see for what they are on first sight. This has led me to look at landscape in a different way. I have been exploring claustrophobic subjects within the landscape, such as close-ups of hedgerows and trees, which fill the picture like a screen or curtain.
