Ramon Robertson has been working as an artist in Auckland, New Zealand since arriving in 2011. Prior to this, he lived in Glasgow, Scotland where he also worked as an artist, designer and tertiary lecturer.
In 1992 Ramon graduated from Glasgow School of Art with a BA Honours Degree in Fine Art Sculpture and in 1997 he completed a MA in Interior Design at Manchester Metropolitan University, for which he undertook sculpture and installation projects related to interiors and architecture.
Robertson’s work typically engages with aspects of architecture and urbanisation. The mass production and standardisation of objects is also a focus, in particular, the observation of the effects of our visual perception in regards to objects and environment. Themes linking to human condition and behaviour in the city are also concepts explored in his work.
Ramon has exhibited widely in Auckland since 2011, including ‘NZ Sculpture OnShore’ in 2012, 2014 and 2016, as well as the ‘Harbourview Sculpture Trail’ in 2014 and 2016, winning the People’s Choice Award for his sculpture ‘Void’ in 2014. Robertson was invited to exhibit in the prestigious ‘Sculpture in the Gardens’ at the Auckland Botanical Gardens, in both 2015 and 2017 and was recently commissioned by the Wallace Arts Trust Collection for a large outdoor work at Pah Homestead.
