Charlie Roberts paints things. Real things. And lots of them. He crams together the millions of images that accumulate in our collective subconscious but never get recognized for what they really are: that is, the very substance of our lives. His canvases are awash in iconography, celebrities, signs, symbolic gestures, junk, famous artworks, animals, disposable culture, album covers, jokes and inside jokes—literally teeming with small and great ideas alike, where each play in a vortex of delicious complexity. Looking at one of his paintings is like standing in a river of culture, pollution and all. And there is no way that you won’t get wet.
