Iain Robertson has been living and working in Cornwall since 1999, having spent the greater part of his life in Edinburgh. Over the past thirteen years, Robertson has been evolving his vocabulary of abstract symbols and in early 2006 made a pivotal multiple painting which set out to show something of his lexicon of individual forms. Mega-Jazzy 2006, consists of fifty paintings which are one foot square. Unlike his individual paintings which owe a debt to chance and coincidence, where the paint (and motifs) collide and overlap on a rich and heavily worked surface, these small, individual works have a distinctive and jewel-like quality.
