Charlie Roberts (US)

The works of Oslo-based American artist Charlie Roberts may feel like looking at the modern world through a distorted looking glass. His works portray young lovers with strange limbs, contemporary novels, and Gucci suits, nevertheless expressing uneasiness with modernity. Working with a range of materials, from paint to clay to carved wood, Roberts’ works consist of a wide range of art-historical and pop-cultural references – stretched and twisted, placed on display. The subject matter, utterly modern, banal, and everyday-like, is at odds with the delicacy of the mediums they are made in.

Roberts (b. 1983, Kansas; US) is educated at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, Vancouver, Canada and Kansas University, USA. His work has been presented at a variety of galleries and institutions in solo exhibitions, among them Woaw (Hong Kong), Galleri Golsa (Oslo), Galleri Magnus Karlsson (Stockholm), David Risley (Copenhagen), Richard Heller Gallery (Los Angeles), Marlborough Contemporary (London) and Trafo Kunsthall (Asker).
