Colin Roberts graduated Otis School of Art and Design in 2001. His work consists of a language of sculpture, drawing, painting and installation that explore various themes revolving around the fragile human condition. The pieces evoke uncanny imagery from both past and present, and are obscured in strange and fantastical ways using surrealism and abject tactics, among others. Kaleidoscopic glass Pillows, Flesh Books and Bubblewrap Cubes are some of the dreamlike creations that make up Colin’s body of work. The art is consistently a careful balance of humor, science and the grotesque, calculated to lead the viewer to question their personal thoughts on various subjects. Through this, the works have the ability to cross significant cultural, social and psychic boundaries. Colin’s work is exhibited internationally and is included in numerous private collections around the world. His work has also been utilized in conjunction with some of the world’s most renowned artists and designers, including Maison Martin Margiela and Johnston Marklee Architects. He is currently represented by June Lee Contemporary and is based in Los Angeles, California.
