Christy Lee Rogers

 "I grew up on an island in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. There the water consumed much of my life, just as it now dominates the foundation of my art.  The beauty and tranquility of water led to my first experimentations with it as an artistic source.  Metaphorically, water stood for purity; and a body immersed in it, free from of gravity but trapped by the inability to breathe, was a huge dichotomy that consumed me.  Pain and suffering all mixed up with freedom and purity.  I would often asked myself how the world could have been created that way.  But my first ideas were to bring more hope back into that dichotomy.  And the water provided another world to create in; away from so-called reality, where bodies would bend, shapes would appear and disappear and colors would cry out to me."
