Julia and Robin Rogers
Physically and metaphorically we put our minds, hearts and hands together to create sculptural works of art. We use glass as a material because we are enlivened by the inherent qualities of molten glass; its luminosity, viscosity, and seductive flow.
Animalia is a driving and important theme in the narrative of our work. Since the advent of human expression, animals have been ever present. We feel that animals have a certain wisdom and intuition that brings alignment with the natural world. There is something to be learned from the animal spirit; especially in today’s fast paced digital life where it is easy to forget that we, ourselves, are inseparable from nature.
In our series, “Architecture of the Mind,” heads are turned into buildings whose history and occupancy is contemplated. Each building has its own unique story, a background different from the one living next door. Still a community is formed amongst the differences, allowing life to thrive in this modern world where there is a great deal on the mind, a lot going on upstairs. Thoughts from day to day life, memories, or even multiple personalities can be perceived.
Our minds never stop imagining the possibilities of what can be explored, discovered, shared, and executed.
