This event has ended.

Synthesizing painting and drawing with kitschy artifacts, artist Joe Roberts seeks out the codes, messages and patterns in the natural world that we don't understand, yet just know are there. Every inch of Roberts’ surfaces are handled and considered, oftentimes in an unpolished manner, but to an ingenious affect. His collaged artwork reads like the maps and blueprints of order and disorder.

Joe Roberts was born in Madison, Wisconsin. An obsession with comic books, skateboarding, space exploration, and his experiences with psychoactive substances are an influence on his work. Using anything from crayons and paint, to trash and cut paper, his art combines humor with a raw and spontaneous aesthetic, creating a world of cartoon imagery laced with personal symbolism. Roberts has shown in New York, San Francisco, Chicago and Mexico City. He currently lives and works in San Francisco.
