Arthur Roberts



12 Prince's Dock


'The work explores imaginary synthetic environments which draws its inspiration from the machine, landscape, celestial skies and the microscopic world. This comibination fuses to create a new spiritual mix reflecting our time.

There is no running away from history; the ghosts of modernism are present within the evolution of abstraction. We take fragments from the past and build new horizons for tomorrow. The layers of paint are equal to the layers of time, , which has travelled before us.

More than ever painting is relevant today within our high speed society, we crave a need for stillness, to wonder, to dream and drift in our universe of imagination'.
