Charlie Roberts "HEX" @ Galleri Magnus Karlsson, StockholmJuxtapoz // Thursday, 16 Jan 2014
Charlie Roberts, who we featured in the magazine in 2013, continues to have a busy schedule with a great stream of shows around the world. His newest is "HEX," will open at Galleri Magnus Karlsson in Stockholm on January 22, 2014, and from January 16–22, visitors can follow the process as Charlie Roberts works with a site-specific sculpture and the installation of the exhibition.
Above is a gallery of works from Roberts' past shows at Magnus Karlsson. From the press release:
Charlie Roberts’s work takes us to a manic, obsessive mindstream of an eclectic collector of contemporary pop culture and art history. Everything is sampled and laid out without hierarchical order and judgements. Roberts uses a wide range of materials and masters a furious force as well as a sensitive subtleness. Abstract patterns, flowing colors and a primitive brutality alongside tender lines, seductive realism and psychedelic poetry. The new works have a more restrained and focused tone, both in content and execution. Every single picture or sculpture holds its own autonomous world. A magical, bizarre and bewitched place. A paradise of sins.
