The themes that interest the painter Julie Roberts—dream and reality, Eros and Thanatos, sleep and death, the historical and the temporal—give her work a depth and associative richness that place her within a tradition going back to classical antiquity. More immediate is an affinity with the work of Francis Bacon and Lucien Freud, as well as with the Surrealist movement—Marcel Duchamp, Max Ernst, René Magritte, and Hans Bellmer particularly come to mind—an affinity identifiable in a shared love of ambiguity and a darker side always tempered by a belief in the positive power of Eros. In Home, the first major monograph on Julie Roberts, the artist's work is highlighted in over 60 beautifully reproduced full-color images, and is accompanied by two insightful essays.
