About Nicholas Robertson
Born Gloucester UK. I suspect like most figurative artists I find drawing and painting the human form wholly embedded with human behaviour. The desire to secure more than a representation of a persons movement, the spilling of light over contours or the various other physical facets is the reason we continue to make paintings. To liberate a recognisable small emotion in texture, colour and pattern and to make it still, perhaps this is a measure of a successful painting. I like to work in acrylic because it allows me to experiment, making changes quickly is paramount when wishing to explore your options.
