Artist Talk: Anthony Roberto

In Anthony Roberto’s darkly comedic series titled Object/Model, Figure/Form, the Portland-based artist uses 3D rendering tools to create a series of scenes where figures cavort in a placeless, timeless void. The stage setting and subtle scrim place the viewer as outside and other, looking on as the figures, at once anonymous and expressive, interact in ways both confusing and absurd. Join the artist for an intimate reception and artist talk about this series. A selection of works remain on view in Upfor’s back room through November 30, 2019.
