Fiona Robertson studied at Chelsea School of Art, London, Glasgow School of Art and the Warsaw Academy of the Arts, before becoming a lecturer in the Painting and Printmaking Department at the Glasgow School of Art, a post she has now held for almost two decades. Based in Glasgow Fiona exhibits both nationally and internationally. Her practice involves a range of mediums including painting, drawing and installation- and most recently, film. Her work consistently engages with an Expressionistic, Surrealist and Feminist lexis situated within traditions of examining and reinventing the ‘carnivalesque’ in art. Fiona regards her films as ‘extended painting’, a way to explore both the metaphysical and the sensory, material aspects of painting. In the process of this, she seeks to analyise, explore and challenge the contradictions of producing pre- and counter-modern art in an authentically modern medium.
