About Moon Drama 5/20

A darkening sky is illuminated by the eclipsed view of a bold deep blue moon in this contemplative piece by Otto Rogers. He was seen as a ‘big attack painter’ by the renowned art critic Clement Greenberg. As one of Canada’s preeminent modernist artists, Rogers found inspiration in both his deep faith as a Baha’i and the beauty of nature so often reflected in his stunning work. Edition 5/20 is framed.

“Art reflects the nature of the human condition, soul, intellect and mind.” Otto Rogers

He acquired his MA in Fine Art from the University of Wisconsin and later taught at the University of Saskatchewan for almost 30 years. He also participated in the Emma Lake Workshops in BC which attracted some of North America’s finest artists. Rogers’ work is held in more than 30 public collections including: the Art Gallery of Ontario, the National Gallery of Canada, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
