Artflit: Jeff Roberts Art & Poetry

Artflit: Jeff Roberts Art & Poetry Original Art and Poetry by Jeff Roberts I am, first, a poet. I am self-taught and self-represented. If it helps us connect, I’m fine using them. We explore.

I write, and I create visual “poem objects” that, I hope, convey messages or feelings with visual poetics: analogy, metaphor, rhyme and alliteration of color and shape, juxtaposition, and things left unsaid. I am happy to be considered an “outsider artist” or part of the “art brut” genre. These are terms used to label artists to help with marketing or to aid in Internet search results. In the end

connecting with art and artists is a personal journey immune to and from labels. I believe that art either affects us or it doesn’t. Our reaction to art needs no defense or explanation. Not liking a work of art is perfectly acceptable. We discover. We winnow. A poem or a piece of art needs to hit us somehow. To make us windmill an arm like Pete Townshend. It's what drives us to create and to collect. I believe that any form of art is only successful if the work turns a common item or idea into an uncommon one—creating not only the poem or poem-object, but some form of emotional power chord. Or sometimes just the sense—or possibility—of that kind of alchemy. Affiliations:
