Alan Robb RSA was born in 1946 and studied at Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen (1964 – 1969), and then at the Royal College of Art, London (1969 – 1972). In 1980 Robb took up a post at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, where he stayed for twenty years, becoming Professor of Fine Art in 1989 and then Head of Fine Art. A large-scale retrospective of Robb’s work was held at the McManus Gallery, Dundee, in 2011.
Robb worked with found objects, making models before he commited a composition to canvas. His work often absorbs religious iconography but also references Pop Art, geology and classical architecture. This cross of ‘high’ and ‘low’ culture melds into a giddying world rife with potent symbolism.
