Atelier Richard Tullis
Minimalism, elegance and the division of space typify Robertson's highly articulated images.
Carol Robertson’s paintings remain firmly rooted within reductive abstract conventions. Although she doesn't seek to confirm or record the way the world looks, her work is never disconnected from it. She continues to make an informal relationship with landscape, architecture, nature and the environment. Her current work still employs familiar geometric formations, particularly circles, but in recent years she has also deconstructed the circle into arcs, thereby exploring a more disruptive asymmetry. From 2005 onwards all her paintings are prepared with poured and stained grounds, often in many layers. These atmospheric and unstructured colour fields complement the carefully drawn and over-painted geometry. Throughout her career she has chosen to use the square, rectangle and circle for their ideal power, for their aesthetic beauty.
