Gerald Roberts: "impatiens"
acrylic on canvas, 2007
Gerald Roberts’ distinctive silhouette, lively imagination and delicious sense of humour are known from Adelaide to Paris, via London and Madrid. To say that he is a dandy and a dilettante would do justice to his unerring elegance and charm in all circumstances, and his obstinate refusal to take himself seriously, but not to his talent or the quality of his painting. It is by choice that he has remained so discreet an artist. We are therefore thrilled to present his first monographic exhibition at “atelier 7” from 11 March to 10 April 2010. The show will consist of more than 20 large acrylics on canvas including a triptych “puzzle painting”, a number of smaller pieces and a selection of watercolours.
