Alex Roberts Germany
  Back to profiles

Alex Roberts is a British artist that lives and works between Berlin and the UK. She works with paint and translucence, addressing paintings’ surface, layers and spatial depth, via the play of colour and immediacy of marks. Testing the sliding scales of figuration and abstraction, her focus is how we perceive identity, change, encounters - human tangibility.

Exploring the relationship between what we see and what we feel, Alex’s painting 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 human states and frequently, the paintings’, sensitive installations 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.
