Statement

Alex Roberts is a British artist that lives and works between Berlin and the UK.  She works with paint and translucence, addressing paintings’ surface and spatial depth. Testing the sliding scale of figuration and abstraction, her focus is how we perceive identity and change – encounters.

Exploring the relationship between what we see and what we feel, the work invites the viewer to question their own perceptions, while hinting at a narrative, or capturing moments in the lives of others.  The candid enquiry often exposes polarized, human states, and frequently, her paintings', sensitive installation set ups implicate or stage the viewer as protagonist. 

Currently she is exploring the tensions between what is public and what is private: how, in today’s digital world, appearance often contrasts with reality and sociability belies intimacy.
