Danielle DeRoberts "A /\ Union"
a/\union: “agree in referring to a oneness, either created by putting together, or by being undivided... harmony"
With this, forms the concept for this series of paintings by artist Danielle DeRoberts: “A Union.” DeRoberts explores the intimate connection between the physical and non; between two sentient beings; between the metaphysical strands that unite us all. DeRoberts believes that we develop these unions on a constant basis, whether we are aware of it or not. Unions can be the simple and romantic- the love found between two people or the casual eye contact with a stranger passing by. Unions can be that between the human and the mountain, the dog and his owner, and even the experience found within one’s self. DeRoberts expands further on this concept by incorporating the element of time; the idea that past and present energy communicates and unites throughout the human experience. This element is represented through titles such as “Timeless Awareness” and “Interconnectivity.”

As an artist, Chloé explores socially-neglected aspects of the human body and challenges the viewer to reconsider not only the "normal" human form, but also to reevaluate their own body in all its idiosyncrasies. In "Skinned," Chloé pushes the viewer to rethink the way they interpret the representation of the skin and form in art and media. The series captures the human form in ways that challenge preconceptions we share about nude imagery. “Form, line work, pattern, and texture all come into focus when we explore skin. For me, skin is the most glorious material there is,” Chloé explains when referring to her ongoing series.
