Emerging New Zealand artist. An artist who has already made a significant impact on the National New Zealand markets and has now reached the stage of international exposure. A number of paintings have already been sold to European buyers, notably German, American, Dutch and English collectors. And now has branched out into the Limited Edition Millennium Series. Additionally associations with the America's Cup Winston lounge.
Robertshaw was born in Cape Town, South Africa where he lived for ten years. The family moved to Napier, New Zealand where he attended Colenso High School then Victora University.
Represented by Intergall. The artist provides a showcase of his works as we enter the new millennium. From the pristine shores of New Zealand, the clear purity of light and the land- the painter draws his inspiration in reflections on time space and spirit..
He has taken the human form captured the language of elements unseen. As the works evolved over the passed decade, a fundamental art expression has emerged. The use of bold colors is reflected particularly in the recent Pacifika Series. These are works dedicated to the Millennium and can be seen in the First Light Limited Edition works released for 1999-2000.
The intuitive emotional spring board has provide the inspiration. The painter has entered into a dialogue- a chronicle like a epic poem. That of New Zealand, The Pacific and of the world. It speaks in all tongues, as art itself is indivisible. It breathes life, embraces all people.
Above all he searches for the new light that may illuminate the shadows lands of mans past
