Featured artists: Sasha Rogers
Opening night Sep 18th 6:00-9:00pm
The horizon figures prominently in Sasha Rogers work pushing and pulling the eye back and forth, simultaneously separating the voids and uniting them in the same dance. Horizon lines are illusions in themselves. We imagine that we can see them, or reach that point where they ultimately touch, but, in reality, that point does not exist. It is an invented mark for an ambiguous state.
Sasha Rogers has been a professional painter for over 20 years, receiving her Masters of Painting in 1987. Artists such as William Turner, Mark Rothko, Agnes Martin, Antoni Tapies, and her father, Canadian abstractionist, Otto Rogers, have influenced Rogers’ work. What collectively draws her to these great artists is their dedication to evocative metaphors rather than literal descriptions. She states, “They invite rather than prescribe.”
