WOAW Gallery, 5 Sun Street, Wan Chai

WOAW Gallery & Case Studyo join hands once again and present “Sandworm” by American artist Charlie Roberts. This is Roberts’s first solo show in Hong Kong. The show titled “Sandworm” takes its name from American science fiction novelist Frank Herbert's work "Dune" where the sandworm is the gatekeeper to the highly prized magical drug. Besides art pieces, the exhibition is complemented by a special wooden sculpture and a small bronze classic patina figure.

To celebrate his first solo show in Hong Kong, Roberts has created a wooden sculpture and small bronze classic patina figure. The wooden sculpture is a hand-carved portrait of a man followed with a full-body design. The character has a white shirt and blue jeans on and placed in a deep dark green background. The man’s facial features are carved out meticulously and finished with acrylic paint; fully displaying Charlie Roberts' quiet and ethereal style. The small bronze figure features a mushroom sporting sneakers that often appears in the works of Roberts’. The bronze figure comes along with a specially designed box and will be sold in limited quantities.
