Christy Lee Rogers
Visual Artist. Nashville TN, USA
Christy Lee Rogers is known for her obsession with water as an artistic source, and for breaking the conventions of contemporary photography with her use of it. For over a decade her work has been compared to Baroque painting masters like Caravaggio, with her use of chiaroscuro lighting and dramatic movement. The constant theme and the purpose behind her work is to question and find understanding in the craziness, tragedy, vulnerability, beauty and power of mankind.
Through our deepest vulnerabilities we somehow find our most profound strengths
Hope and beauty are waiting
Through our deepest vulnerabilities we somehow find our most profound strengths. I wish this were not true, but I like to see it as a mechanism to fortify the heart and soul. In this modern Renaissance within, ignited by pain and distress, a transformative provocation, there is hope and beauty at the other side waiting to show itself.
Art as a doorway into the soul
With art as a doorway into the soul or something deeper within ourselves, we can use it to look beyond the limited confines of what's placed in front of us, and to see between the spaces of dark and light into new frontiers.
Everyday people can be transformed into angelic creatures with the slightest change of perspective
A change of perspective
Like water that flows life to all crevices of the earth, this image represents how everyday people can be transformed into angelic creatures with the slightest change of perspective, by using tools in new ways and allowing our mistakes to guide us toward new truths.
