In keeping with the spirit of craft, L.J. Roberts makes work that explores queer and trans politics, activism, and community. Craft itself is in a marginalized position in the art world, so Roberts' use of it provides it with even more strength and resilience. The evidence of the artist's hand and the meticulous nature of craft creates a sense of urgency, a feeling that we should be listening. Since completing their MFA in Fine Arts and MA in Visual and Critical Studies at California College of the Arts, they have exhibited nationally and internationally and have presented their scholarly work that bridges craft and queer theory at conferences and in publications.
