Oslo-based, Kansas-born painter and sculptor Charlie Roberts has collaborated with AllRightsReserved on his first-ever wood sculpture editions. The Horse Play, Night Walk and Rum Punch trio unfold scenes from everyday life featuring animal characters.
Roberts’ wood editions feature rough-hewn designs with painted details that convey a sense that the characters have stepped out of a canvas and onto a shelf. Making the most of the medium, Roberts has designed the pieces to be two-sided with each side revealing a different aspect of the scene. In the case of Rum Punch and Night Walk, the flip side reveals characters largely unseen from the other side. Each design incorporates fun details such as the artist’s initials scrawled on sneakers or a snail hiding behind a rock on the back side of Horse Play.
Signed and numbered editions of 25, the Horse Play, Night Walk and Rum Punch wood sculptures are available from DDT Store for HK$19,625 (~$2520). Each sculpture is packaged in a wooden box and includes a certificate of authenticity. The sculptures are scheduled to ship in April 2022.
