Andrew Rogers, I Am‐Dancer, 2018. Stainless steel, red polychrome, 69 x 38 x 39cm, edition of 12 + 1AP. Courtesy: the artist and Dominik Mersch Gallery, Sydney.
frisson is an exhibition that brings together a selection of maquettes, sculptures and land art photography by Andrew Rogers, an artist deeply inspired by the structures, materials and implicit rhythms of our environment. Rogers is largely known for his open-form sculptures that curl and swell with material vitality, suggesting a sense of transformation.
The National Gallery of Australia notes how these works are “informed by the rugged expression of Auguste Rodin, the organic abstraction of Henry Moore, and the cool conceptualism of Anthony Caro.”
Dominik Mersch Gallery will also exhibit photographs of Rogers’ colossal land art project Rhythms of Life, which spans 51 sculptures across seven continents.
Exhibition opens: 6–8pm Wednesday 24 April 2019
