Alain Rogier, Complexity in Search of Serenity
Artist Alain Rogier’s current work continues to examine the depth and complexity of the human condition, in search of beauty, serenity and solace. Rogier’s work seeks to illustrate a positive view of humanity amidst a world that constantly challenges us. While bringing to bear a personal history as the child of Holocaust survivors who met at Auschwitz, Rogier’s work explores art as a tool for understanding and its ability to transcend and illuminate ideas. Abstract shapes and lines engulf Rogier’s large scale canvases. Using a vibrant, high-contrast color palette and bold, active brushstrokes, the artist’s compositions reject passivity, demanding dialogue and engagement with the viewer.
