Peter Rogiers - As Grandma Told Us Stories (2010)
Peter Rogiers is toiling through the matter with synthetic resin and cast aluminium attempting to generate an oblique and different imagery out of sync with what we recognize in our world. Therein lies the core and essence of real artistic production – the desire to mould into a plastic shape undermining visual recognition and shunt man onto the track of imagination. Peter Rogiers recently created new so-called ‘bird sculptures’ where the bird is barely an echo of the verbal reference and has become the alibi to freely conjure with abstract forms visually varying according to the place and viewpoint of perception.
