It’s Elementary

Exhibition and Shows

21 Aug 2020 to 25 Oct 2020

The inspiration for David Roberts’ exhibition comes from the elements known to the ancients as earth, water, air, and fire:

“These elements shape the world around us as much as they decay the world we try to build. They continue long after our passing, themselves driven by the permanent forces of nature that govern the cosmos. They are at their most dramatic where they combine: where the sky meets the earth, an ocean touches a shore, clouds embrace mountains or a storm brews in a desert. They are at their most subtle as they erode away the machines and structures we build in honour of ourselves. And in these moments, both fierce and subtle, there is a beauty that transcends place and conjures emotion, a sense of the power and place that locates our own existence. It is this emotional value and connection that the works in this exhibition seek to reflect.”

Developing this exhibition, Roberts predominately used acrylics on stretched canvas with limited use of impasto and watercolours.
