Robert is an artist who works primarily in oil paint. Often meditating on specific locations, her work reflects memories of places that she has been, interwoven with more idyllic and imagined elements of the environment. Roberts’ sublime landscapes are nostalgic and evocative, but also whimsical and ethereal in nature. Exploring ideas of personal and cultural identity and one’s sense of belonging within a place, she draws inspiration from her experience of living in between countries and relocating many times in her life. Born in Sydney and having grown up in Mexico, France, Sweden and Poland, the feeling of being foreign in an unfamiliar land was an influential one. Her oil paintings come to life through a constant process of accumulation and reduction: thoughtful yet fluid in her approach, she may patiently revisit the same painting again and again, adding and removing layers
