(Framed concrete, 2014)
Robbie Hamilton graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone Art College, Dundee in 2014.
This artwork was recently purchased for the Art Collection from the RSA New Contemporaries 2015 exhibition.
Robbie works with utilitarian, raw materials. Years of skateboarding have made him appreciate materials from the urban environment such as concrete, which he either frames as it is, as with this piece, or paints with standard emulsion paint. In his work he draws our attention to these working materials which he feels 'are important and shouldn't be overlooked'.
