About This Artwork

This piece, also called The Grey [...] is Roberta’s most intense and difficult piece to date. With 300 hundred hours of active work and over 4 million dots, The Grey [...] was born out of that primordial need to challenge and push past all the self-perceived limitations. Mentally, this artwork represents an unseen level of commitment and patience. Technically, it reflects Roberta’s boundless love for the intuitive and meditative nature of her work between her motifs and symbols and the technique of pointillism (stippling). It truly is the epitome of what her art means to her: the disappearance, annihilation of self into the abstract reality of all that is unseen to most, but her. In her world she comes to life in the joy of her making, in the addiction to the physical pain and distress, in the beauty of something so complex and yet so simple and finally in the power of subtleties and mesmerizing deceptions. Roberta says: “This piece is the tale of hardship, strength and conquest. As the name entails, grey is my favorite color, as it is peaceful, calm and quiet. Here, I tell the story of my life, a life where I am always searching for the next thrill, the thrill of a conquest, the thrill of the fight, the thrill of success and accomplishment alongside all the pain, distress and hurt that is necessary to prove that you can be more and can do more than you ever think possible. I always think big, I am not afraid to jump in, I need the challenge, I need to feel like the life I am living means something, that I was born for a reason and that I was here. The Grey [...] means everything to me. I lived this piece like no other, I played with it. I suffered so much, but the excitement and the smile on my face when I dotted that last dot was priceless. I would do this again in a heartbeat.”
