Visions from Faith

The Visions From Faith are about redemption. These pieces symbolize the transforming experience, the surrender of oneself to an intangible power requiring the reduction of the mature ego to powerlessness, surrendering Life to Infinite Being. Life. All, not just personality, indulgences, career and values, it is non-negotiable.

In my opinion it is a fundamental motivation in us all, always and forever, the striving for spiritual fulfillment, consciousness of, and consciousness with, what is globally known by humankind by many names all meaning GOD.

Group Self Portraits

Much modern art takes pride in meaninglessness. It‘s about whatever you think it’s about. It is all up to the viewer, aided of course by the intellectual speculations of curators and dealers. But this art is radically meaningful. It is specific and accurate reporting of a reality more common than has been supposed until lately - MPD, or Multiple Personality Disorder. Rogers says it should be Multiple Personality Gift because as a child if he had not been able to psychologically disconnect under sensed threat of death he may not have survived.

Rogers' work can be described as "comic and grotesque, benevolent and sinister."
