About This Artist
Philip is a happily married, full-time artist from rural New Jersey. He relies heavily on his ability to leverage modern-day technologies to accurately bring his meticulous designs to life. These abilities are born from his love of art, design, machinery, and a past in traditional woodworking. Patiently working with a variety of super-thin plywood, Philip builds up layer upon layer to create relief sculptures that invoke feelings both traditional and modern.
Q&A With This Artist
A: Designing and then working with a variety of precisely laser-cut pieces of super thin plywood, New Jersey-based artist Philip Roberts creates ultra-intricate layered-wood Relief Sculptures. They are built to inspire viewers and greatly enhance surrounding environments. Building the intricate form starts from digital illustrations which are meticulously transformed into wood with his laser cutters. The individual components are then finished and glued by hand.
A: Coming from a career in custom wooden furniture, Phil aims to combine his love for woodworking along with his background in design. While initial ideas are sketched digitally, the physical form requires balancing design and function.
A: The passion for create new work is a cocktail mixture of survival and aspiring to bring something to life that actually pleases my own eye. It doesn't happen often.
