Charlie Roberts Channels His Canine Muse in ‘Hammer Work’

Eight bronze sculptures made in conjunction with Case Studyo.

Charlie Roberts is an Oslo-based, American artist whose fearless approach to painting often stacks different scenes and subjects to offer alternate views simultaneously. By weaving the canon of art history with pop culture, Roberts’s multi-disciplinary practice results in illusionary compositions and sculptures that seek to bewilder the eye.

The artist has reworked with the team at Case Studyo on a new bronze sculptural edition that plays into the dog muse that has reappeared throughout his career. Hammer Work features an anthropomorphic set of characters cast from carved Norwegian chunks of wood. Each of the eight sculptures is hand-painted by the artist himself, who added custom outfits and personal traits, garnering each to be unique.

As an edition of eight, plus four artist proofs, Hammer Work measures at 18.9 x 10.6 x 5.5 inches and comes signed and numbered by the artist. To purchase, please visit Case Studyo for more information.
