Half human, half flower…. Rogers new Hybrids collection will make you wonder if it’s possible.
HYBRIDS “Love is like a Flower”Graham’s Fine Art Gallery is thrilled to welcome contemporary artist, Christy Lee Rogers to the gallery this fall for her South African solo debut and new collection HYBRIDS.
From eternal life to humility and devotion, flowers have had many meanings throughout time. From youth, enlightenment, faith, hope, the divine, beauty, to chastity, fertility, fragility, hope and rebirth; these blossoming fragile creatures are the most beautiful life forms on the planet, and yet one of the most transitory in terms of life span. In her latest underwater collection Hybrids, Rogers creates hybrid human and flower beings, photographed underwater using her rare techniques and style that have gained her International recognition. To encapsulate the feelings and her message into the final works, she then created watercolor and acrylic paintings that she meticulously layered into several of the final images.
Rogers explains “my favorite quote that was inspiring me along the way was from― Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince “She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her… I ought to have guessed all the affection that lay behind her poor little stratagems. Flowers are so inconsistent! But I was too young to know how to love her…”
Here’s to Freedom for everyone, everywhere and for eternity!!!!!

“All the Colours Bleed into One” Christy Lee Rogers
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.
