Edition of 40 (plus artist and school proofs)
Signed and numbered by the artist
Materials: Lithograph
Dimensions: 49.5 x 76 cm

"The Source lithograph is made from a drawing that I made at the start of the process of designing my permanent public sculpture and garden titled The Source for Wakefield (to be launched in early 2024 as the final work installed for the new Wakefield sculpture trail). This drawing is an exercise in fluidity and movement which uses a ‘horizon line’ as an anchor point to depart from above and below the surface. The Source is inspired by the springs and wells which up until 1837 was Wakefield’s main source of water. Taking visual cues from the movement of water the drawing consists of fluid and watery lines, shapes, colours, and movement inspired by the life source of water and the spiritual and energetic associations with where water breaks through the crust of the earth and becomes surface water.

Ro Robertson - they/them (b.1984, Sunderland) is a contemporary artist based in West Cornwall. Robertson’s practice spans sculpture, drawing, painting and video, mediums through which they explore the boundaries of the human body and its environment.

Robertson works site specifically, often outdoors, with a multi-sensory focus on the body in the landscape. Unity between the material of the natural landscape and the body reclaims a space for LGBTQ+ identity against a history of being deemed ‘against nature’. Physical explorations of the natural landscape feed into ‘automatic’ abstract drawings and short mediative video works.
Robertson’s largescale sculptures embed the fluidity of this cyclical practice into rigid and industrial materials such as Cor-ten steel and marine paint, materials that bridge their family heritage of ship building and their sculptural practice.
