Leia Rogers  Bio    



Based in Vancouver, Leia Rogers studied painting at Emily Carr College of Art and received an Honors degree in Visual Art from the University of Victoria in 2001.


 


Leia Rogers' abstract paintings are influenced by the incorporation of nature within urban development and design.  Her works serve as a reminder of the processes by which nature is increasingly synthesized into a practical cosmopolitanism that appeals to style and efficiency.  Most recently, her abstracted landscapes attempt to break down natural and physical imagery borrowed, reduced, colour matched, and filtered until only a synthetic sense of nature, rather than an image of one, remains.


 


Leia's earlier three dimensional work explores the sculptural possibilities of the painted surface.  Made up of two or more converging and folding panels, the paintings are designed to mimic and contort the proportions of traditional painting supports.  The result is a body of work that usurps space three dimensionally while carefully retaining the properties of painting.
