Alex Roberts



Alex Roberts studied at City of Bath Art College and Reading University before completing a further diploma at the London College of Printing. Roberts is an accomplished artist working predominantly with paint, whilst she also explores other media such as film and installation. Her present critique is motivated by the concept of how we perceive identity and change. Roberts’ current studio practice is concentrated on working with the figure. She questions the normality of human characteristics and explores the emotions that fuel our character. The resulting work invites the viewer to question how he or she perceives their own world and offers a provocative and often humorous take on the sometimes-different world of others. She looks at our image-obsessed world head on, exploring role-play and portraiture, embracing (yet also challenging) clichés and the discussion of what is beauty. Recent exhibitions include the solo showcase Individual Liberty, 7/7a Gt. Guildford Business Square London 2011, Worcester Open 2010, Swan Song St. Anne’s House, Diadem Court London 2010 curated by Rowena Chiu.
