D J Roberts is attracted to ordinary but enigmatic places that possess a sense of strangeness or mystery. It is the ambiguity of these places that excites him. He is interested too in implied narrative: the feeling that something, something disturbing perhaps, has just happened or is about to happen. The work is roughly executed, in keeping with the subject matter. Sometimes real places are depicted, sometimes places worked up from memory, imagination or collage. Invariably the final image is very different from the source material: the aim is to capture the spirit of the place as opposed to its naturalistic representation.

D J Roberts graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in 2000. Shows include: Driven, Fieldgate Gallery, London, 2007; Disposable Fetish, The Nunnery, London, 2007; Drip Grot, Contemporary Art Projects, London, 2006; Mostyn 15, Oriel Mostyn Gallery, Llandudno, 2005; Moral Plinth, Beaconsfield, London, 2004; Contemporary British Painting (selected by Gary Hume), Hastings Museum and Art Gallery, Hastings, 2004; Another Such Place, Lounge Gallery, London, 2004; The Jerwood Drawing Prize, Jerwood Space, London/touring, 2003; Mostyn 13, Oriel Mostyn Gallery, Llandudno, 2003; What Is It About The Place? Lounge Gallery London, 2003; London-Bulgaria, State Gallery, Plovdiv, Bulgaria/touring, 2002.
He lives and works in London.
