I always base my work on observation. Having created a garden in France from a wilderness of self-seeded trees and brambles, I came to be interested in the patterns of plants and use these in some of my work. Eight of these prints are available for sale.
Robert Crozier is a painter, printmaker and ludic poet. He attended Edinburgh College of Art where he won an Andrew Grant Scholarship. He has work in the Government Art Collection, the Ritchie Collection and those of Aberdeen Standard Investments, the Arts and Theatre Trust Fife, Edinburgh University, Napier University, Lothian Education Committee, Leeds Education Committee, Midlothian County Council, Aberdeen Libraries, Art in Healthcare and many private collections. He has produced calligrams and other visual poems, various bestiaries and has invented a comic form, which he calls The Thingabout. It begins with a complaint like 'The thing about' or 'The trouble with' and proceeds with as many lines as required with the same rhyme, before concluding with a couplet with a different rhyme. He has also produced a small collection of clerihews on printmaking techniques. The one on linocutting which is the method he uses most these days is as follows: Linocuts/ Are made by making ruts/ In the right floor-covering stuff/For these prints fitted carpets, kelims and dhurries are all duff.
