Edie Roberson

Edie is an academically trained artist who has been producing works of fine art for more than seven decades. Here, at her official website, you can view images of some of the many paintings she has created over the years. Be sure to explore the Gallery page, where most of these images can be found. In addition to her extensive "Post Modern" work, Edie is also known for her trompe-l'oeil paintings which "fool-the-eye". That is, it becomes hard to tell where the two dimensional painting ends and the three dimensional real world begins. But her unique style has evolved over the decades and has slipped the bounds of traditional artistic categorization. Her pieces range from colorful impressionistic natural landscapes, to super-realistic still-life, to ethereal free-flight through cloud-filled dreamscapes, to light-hearted parties and gatherings of various human, animal and antique toy "beings".
Although the majority of her art takes the form of two dimensional paintings (primarily acrylic, oils, pastels, pencil and watercolor), she also creates three dimensional works including sculptures, custom frames for her paintings and 3D "paintings". More recently, she has ventured into the fourth dimension with her moving automata creations. You can read more about her education, professional background and accomplishments on the Biography page. If you happen to be in town, you can see her work in person at the David Ericson Fine Art Gallery located in Salt Lake City. Edie usually has one or two new exhibitions each year and frequently participates and contributes to local art events. You can read about upcoming exhibits and her latest projects on the News page. If you would like to send Edie a comment, you can fill out and send her an email from the Contact page. However, she cannot answer every inquiry because she is much too busy right now creating new art! Welcome and have fun exploring the magical, whimsical world (and truly unique style) of Edie Roberson's fine art.

Artist's Statement
'Art is a passion for me. My creations come from a gestation period of whatever time it takes, then come to life in special magical moments in the present. Whatever goes into my paintings are chosen intuitively. They must "feel" right to me, and also in their relationship to each other. I would like each viewer to explore what they see, without limits imposed by me. What's "real".....and what's not? What's going on here? What do they see or imagine? What are their individual stories that they get from my paintings? Some of my work may be "surreal whimsy," but a little bit of humor is not bad, these days! Beauty, light, color, texture, and gesture are, and have always been, extremely important to me, in whatever art genre I happen to create.' - July 2007
