Riders of the Light – Christmas Eve in a cathedral in Paris -HUMAN Christy’s photographs

“The name HUMAN was selected for Christy’s latest series to presuppose a coming together of humanity into a modern renaissance, kindled by adversity and tribulation, and flowering into unforeseen new realities. If art was a passageway into the soul and something more profound within ourselves, she reminds us of our own vulnerabilities within a landscape of hope and magic. In Rogers’ unique way, she urges us to look beyond the finite boundaries of what’s in front of us, and to see between the spaces into a new future.

All of her works are photographed in water, using the refraction of light to create painterly images, and often compared with Baroque and Renaissance paintings. The water within the images flows life to all areas, taking on bold curving forms and transforming everyday people into angelic creatures, seemly from some other place. In these works Rogers hypothesizes the idea that if photons of light are without mass and only perceived because of the eyes, then there must be other things around us that we can not perceive of as of yet.”
