With his first solo-exhibition, The Last Viking , Nathaniel Rogers moves from *gogo art projects into our roster of gallery artists. Rogers updates Old World nursery rhymes, creating a series of oil paintings on wood panel filled with humorous insight on human folly. Attributes including toys and animals allude to "The Owl and the Pussycat," and other tales, in which Rogers identifies with current issues, such as the definition of marriage. Intensifying scenes with vivid depictions of fire, the artist romanticizes destruction popularized in action films and video games.
An opening night reception will be held Saturday, May 30th: 6-8pm. Artist in attendance.
