Artist Statement:

Andrew Rogers Contemporary Sculpture 

Exhibiting at SOHO Galleries & Artpark Exhibitions

Andrew Rogers specialises in monumental and landmark sculptures both figurative and abstract and has carried out an impressive number of commissions and has major works not only in Australia, but also in San Francisco, New Jersey, Dallas, Vienna, Kobe, Osaka, Singapore, Athens, Jerusalem, Taipei, Berkshire UK, and Machu Picchu in Peru. They range from a small intimate bronze, Resistance, presented to Simon Wiesenthal in Vienna, to Evolution a huge complex work 4.3 metres high.

Andrew Rogers is one of Australia's most distinguished and internationally recognized contemporary sculptors. He exhibits internationally and his critically acclaimed sculptures are in numerous private and prominent public collections in Australia, South East Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and the United States of America. He receives many international commissions and has created "Rhythms of Life", the largest contemporary land art undertaking in the world, forming a chain of 51 massive stone sculptures, or Geoglyphs, around the globe. The project has involved over 6,700 people in 13 countries across seven continents.

"Rhythms of Life" has been created over a period of 15 years. These structures are in exotic disparate locations including deserts, fjords, gorges, national parks and altiplano. It is the largest contemporary land art undertaking in the world and spans the globe.

These connected drawings on the surface of the Earth refer to the physical building blocks of history and civilization, while addressing the interconnection of humanity throughout time and space. Unique is an intent of this undertaking to have these drawings on the earth photographed by specifically commissioned satellites from a distance of 450 kilometres (280 miles) above the Earth revealing the structures as specks in space and a moment in time.

A purpose of the "Rhythms of Life" Land Art structures is to establish consecrated space. The structures denote the separation from the ordinary and provide contemplative settings.

The Australian sculptor began his personal artistic journey almost 30 years ago as a painter. But in the late 1980s, after numerous visits to the Musee Rodin, in Paris, he decided to give up painting to take up sculpture. "With sculpture we learn to perceive, to recognize differences, to clarify, to make a decision, and eventually one can see what it is that matters to create a form."
