Murray Robertson: Stravaig, Stravaiger, Stravaigen

Bookmark and Share

This exhibition brings together a collection of iconographic images and ideas that are used to explore ancient myths, history, geology and environment of the Scottish landscape and the human psyche.

Scottish artist Murray Robertson studied at Glasgow School of Art and continues to live and work in Glasgow.  His work integrates traditional fine art printmaking along with research, development and application of new technologies, specifically digital imaging and printing.  Robertson is seeking to engage viewers to question their ideas of the natural world by allowing oneself to 'stravaig' or 'roam', be a 'stravaiger' and take a 'stravaigen' through image and concept.  He works with subjects using imagery collected from textbooks on natural history, early and contemporary printed maps, scientific/technological imagery and cultural icons.  Robertson is also a Master Printer at Glasgow Print Studio where he manages the Digital Imaging Suite.
