Closing Weekend


Closing weekend for the Art of Drue Roberts at The Art Junction.

The Art Junction presents:

                         The Road So Far…

The artwork of Drue Roberts

Regular Gallery Hours:

Fridays & Saturdays September 14 – October 6, 2012 4:30 – 7:00 p.m.

*Special showings upon request!

 

Drue Roberts graduated from Willard High School in 1993 and went on to study Geology. After graduate school, he became an environmental geologist performing studies at superfund sites, the military and national laboratories. Drue is a self-taught artist who specializes in acrylic painting and has shown his work in Santa Fe, New Mexico and in Ohio. He and his wife have travelled the country and now reside in Granville, Ohio with their two boys.

Art is an extension of the inner artist and there is always some trepidation in sharing so much of one’s self. “When I think of showing my artwork in my hometown, it simply terrifies me,” Roberts shared. “Here I stand at the midpoint of my life worrying how people I haven’t seen in 20 years will react to it. Much of what I’ve spent my life seeing, analyzing and interpreting is wrapped up in these paintings.” A lot of how he sees the world has been colored by his experiences and the culture that exists in Willard, Ohio.

 

Roberts, a geologist by trade who has traveled the country with his work, taught himself to draw and paint. He began with colored pencils and eventually graduated to acrylic paints, which he’s used to develop his unique style of layering paint using bold colors and pronounced light and shadows to produce his diverse themes. Roberts’ experience as a geologist dealing with environmental contamination inspires much of his work. “Presenting an amplified view of our surroundings awakens the viewer to the impact our lives have on the world around us,” he said. He also adds that the murals of Diego Rivera, the sparseness of Edward Hopper and the dinosaurs of William Stout influence his work.
