Eric Roberts’ art is giving dreamscape, reality and interpretation a voice as he follows the subject matter from his mind to the stroke of his brush. Not always with intent, he affords the customs of human experiences and small happenings of life the dignity and weight of deep and careful consideration in his paintings. His interpretations of these experiences, each given equal attention and grace, leaves the message open to the viewer. I feel the intensity of the moment he is illustrating in the colors and forms that he chooses, verified through authentic conversations after the fact. While some may seek to see the ideal, Eric is able to simplify the mere struggle of the human experience, with all its complexities, into a vivid glimpse of his imagination.
