Christy Lee Rogers’ newest body of work “CELESTIAL BODIES” to open in Mexico City
Let There Be Art Gallery, Mexico City is pleased to announce part one of Christy Lee Rogers’ most extensive and ambitious exhibition to date, Celestial Bodies. The collection features new large-scale color photographs, star and cloud time-lapse, water and interpretations of space video installations and wood relief sculptures. Her new work explores the human condition and spirit through the gravitationally bound structures of the universe, expanding on and transporting her already imposing vision, literally into the stratosphere.
A portion of the photography collection is dedicated to Rogers’ interpretation of the dualistic nature of the universe. She explores the idea of the two opposing, yet complementary forces into which creative energy divides and whose fusion brings the phenomenal world into being, with double images that take one in time and space into her classical yet futuristic world.
Christy Lee Rogers’ Celestial Bodies will run at LTB Art from August 6 to September 6, 2015, with an opening reception, artist in attendance on Thursday, August 6 from 6 to 9 pm.
Christy Lee Rogers is a visual artist from Kailua, Hawaii. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including The Honolulu Museum of Art, a retrospective show at the Angers Opéra House in France, where she was given a medal of honor by the city of Angers, Carrousel Du Louve, Paris, LTB Art, Mexico City and her first solo show (in July 2015) at Art Labor in Shanghai, China. The London Independent describes her work as a mix of Masters – the vivid hues of Titian, the straining bodies of Rubens, the sun-dappling chiaroscuro of Caravaggio, but also the loose brushstrokes and fluid movement of Delacroix. Rogers’ is currently a finalist for the Contemporary Art Price at the François Schneider Foundation, France, winners being announced on May29th; and her “Reckless Unbound” is housed at Longleat House in the UK; the stately home, which is the seat of the Marquesses of Bath and also home to Renaissance gems of the Italian masters, like Titan’s “Rest on the Flight into Egypt.”
