July 2006: Ron Rogers Sculpture
Ron Rogers creates "Shrines to Dead Musicians". They are one of a kind tributes to his favorite great blues and rock artists. Crafted using found wood, handmade skeleton heads and a variety of recycled materials, Rogers' shrines and caskets fully utilize mixed media, adding a textural component to his constructions. There is a roughness and honesty to his work, evoking primitive or outsider art. He creates them from scraps of old wood, found objects and paint. Painted words become an integral part of each piece. Ron grew up in Texas and began playing music in the sixties. His love of music is evident in his work. Rogers's musical and artistic talents have join forces to create exceptional art pieces.
