Hand engraved text on found copper sheet.
"Cu is the symbol for Copper, and when I came across this sheet and once cleaned, its reflective sheen, I could only think of Cu as See You.

Often extemporaneous and flippant, the work of Scott Robertson suggests a light hearted approach to life. A note taped to the wall with the words “Chin up” makes us smile, it embodies elastic humour whilst implying the emotional reassurance that this phrase may impart. The work uses phrases which defuse common emotions and fears with playful humour. The piece “Seen you” displays its title proudly, etched into polished copper, beaming out as the light strikes its surface. Robertson's work reminds us to smile: we are in on the joke. Simultaneously playful and comforting, it is a cure - a reintroduction of sincere humour and simple solutions to an often apathetic attitude in modern society.
