Description

A resident of Iowa City, Iowa, Roberts is a native of California. He received his MFA from the University of Iowa in 1975 and has participated in numerous exhibitions nationwide.
Michael Roberts is known for his highly realistic portrait cut-outs on wood. His subjects have included well-known political or historical figures as well as ordinary citizens. The cut-outs appear three dimensional instead of flat, with facial features augmented by intense lighting at close range.
