On view at Division June 3rd – 2nd
Reception is 4-6pm Monday, June 10th
In his most recent body of work, Christian Rogers continues to explore print-based materials through the use of copy machines and silk screening. Currently he employs all mediums but focuses on making print based works and drawings. Christian’s imagery is created from a series of “scanner bed drawings” in which the artist uses a scanner to distort and essentially render drawings and found images as brush strokes. Working from a potentially endless amounts of material, Christian then curates a selection of scanner drawings to work from. For Christian, the work is just as much about creating formal compositions that speak to midcentury abstraction & expressionism, as it is about conceptually pushing the ideas of print, technology and appropriation.
Born and raised in North Portland, Christian continues to live and work in Northeast Portland. He received his BFA from Western Oregon University in 2010 and is planning to pursue graduate school in 2014.
