Reckless Unbound

Christy Lee Rogers (1972 Honolulu, Hawaii) reshapes the boundaries between contemporary photography and painting, with her series Reckless Unbound. While provoking the audience with vivacious movements and purpose, she also stirs the viewer’s memories of baroque painter Pieter Paul Rubens and his Massacre of the Innocents. 

Without the use of post-production manipulation, Rogers’ works are made in-camera, on the spot, in water and at night.  She applies her technique to bodies submerged in water during tropical nights in Hawaii. Through a fragile process of experimentation, she builds elaborate scenes of coalesced colours and entangled bodies that exalt the human character as one of vigour and warmth, while also capturing the beauty and vulnerability of the tragic experience that is the human condition.

Reckless Unbound opens this fall 2012 in Los Angeles, New York and San Francisco.  For details visit her website at http://www.christyrogers.com
