Daniel Roberts 'Unlikely Defectors'

There is something sinister about examining society's role in its own misfortune. Through the body's associative history with objects and places, artist Daniel Roberts seeks to describe this turn to failure with both brutality and tenderness, leaving the viewer in an inextricable atmosphere of dust and dirt, color and fate. We discover articles that represent an abandonment of assumed affiliations, revealing dubious endorsements of opposing forces. Placed next to each other, these discarded items find companionship. In this spirit, they exist as remnants of their misfortune and maybe as semblance of resilience. Roberts' drawings frame these disused objects in a bundled futility while three bronze sculptures uncover a bending truth. Unlikely Defectors is an intimate portrait of this reckoning and these drawings and sculptures serve as a reminder of the disused's purpose in the weathering disarray and descent.

Daniel Roberts lives and works in New York City. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from Oregon State University in 2007 and his Master of Fine Arts from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2011. His work has most recently been part of Peekskill Project V organized by Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (HVCCA).
