Cards on the Table
Ranging from quick-fire questions for us to ponder to provocative longer works drawing on classical themes, this highly entertaining collection will surprise and inspire with its wit and honesty. Lean, yet vivid, Jeremy Robert's style can be sensuous, graphic or outspoken.He weaves in and out around Pop Culture icons such as James Dean & Andy Warhol, as well as making irreverent commentaries on Kiwi culture. Whether 'seeking answers' in Auckland's Western park, hanging out with crazies at LA's Venice Beach, contemplating a cheap Margarita in a Texas bar, observing human tragedy on a Paris street, reflecting in steamy Bali evening, or contemplating a piece of rubbish in London, Roberts articulates with truth and honesty during his journey of discovery. Roberts does more than put his cards on the table - he lines up his targets and then hammers the poetic nails in."
