Los Angeles, CA, December 17, 2013 - Having traveled extensively in over 50 countries, with professional art exhibitions on four continents, artist Fawn Rogers has a habit of embracing the full range of human experience.Since her first public installation in Puna, India in 1993 (a three-story site-specific installation titled Jewels, Gods, and Dust), Rogers has covered the map literally and artistically in her attempts to reflect and inspire experience. Other notable international exhibitions have included Kokoro in Tokyo in 1995, and Earth to Hand in Marche, Italy in 1999.Her most recent installation, a commission of works from the Visible Light series, is currently on view at Alan Friedman, 350 N Canon Drive in Beverly Hills.She recently sat down for an interview on her work with light. The following is an excerpt:Interviewer: Youve worked in a variety of media, and in a variety of settings. Do you feel like theres a sort of through-line, or central theme to your work?Fawn Rogers: Human connection to others and nature. Sensuality. The interplay of light and the abyss.IN: How has that been a part of the current series?FR: Technically speaking, the substance of the art is pure light. There is a dichotomy between that work and the Garden Light series, which has lots of motion and energy, and is curated from photographic images taken at midnight. In a non-technical sense, the work came from a very dark place for me, historically. I was inspired to create this work in response to the abyss.IN: What do you have in the works for upcoming projects?FR: I just completed a proposal for a possible public exhibition at LAX. And Im working on a fine art video installation that Im very excited about. Its titled I LOVE YOU AND THAT MAKES ME GOD. The project comes from a metaphysical place is it empowering or disempowering? In some capacity, its part of a dialogue with theories of love as exchange of power. And its about evolution Art through human history and who we are right now and who I am right now; both our evolution and an awareness of that evolution. www.fawnrogers.comPress Contact:Amanda BermudezFawn Rogers3530 Wilshire Blvd, Suite 1460 Los Angeles, CA 900102133555131info@fawnrogers.comhttp://www.fawnrogers.com
