Helen Rogers

Never feeling as comfortable with pen and ink in two dimensions, Helen Rogers chose to create three dimensional characters in clay. Her whimsical boars, possums, armadillos, and more play in her delightfully imagined playgrounds. Her sculpture is intended to invite the viewer and reader to experience the stories she writes with the characters and settings she imagines - in this case, Cumberland Island! Join us for a reception on June 28th from 5pm - 8pm. Helen will be here to discuss her work and you can see a gallery full of critters! There are more than we could show below so you'll definitely want to see this in person!

Helen Rogers Artist Bio

I think that in an earlier life, I was an alchemist.

I say this, because from as early as I can remember, I have been trying to make one thing into another. When I was a child, mud pies became brownies. My backyard was a far off jungle to be explored. The night sky was the view from my room in a space station. I was a bold solo adventurer on a quest, sleeping under the stars every night.

Of course, mud never became brownies, my backyard was situated in a suburban neighborhood in NY, the night sky was often obscured by street lights, and even when my family went camping, we used a tent. But that never stopped me from escaping into my imagination. Then or now.

Through grammar and high school, and later in college, I had a flirtatious love affair with art. I never settled on a single medium for long. I took away as much as I needed to learn to continue on my own, and inferred the rest.

The sculptural work I enjoy creating the most are the characters that populate stories inspired by trips to Georgia's Golden Isles, in particular, Cumberland and Ossabaw Islands. Each sculpture represents a character and pivotal moment in the stories, and is carefully constructed by hand using clay, slip, velvet under-glaze, and high-fire glaze. Details are added using fiber, polymer clay and other found materials.

 

Helen Rogers Artist Statement

As a young girl, it was nearly impossible to get my nose out of a book. Even during class, with the threat of a rap on the knuckles or a trip to the supply closet, I would hide my book under the top of my desk and read. The occasional illustration would light my imagination. In my mind, pictures were almost as exciting as the written word, because they provided an entrance to the writer's mind and the world of the story.

Never feeling as comfortable with pen and ink in two dimensions, I created characters with clay in three dimensions. My sculpture is intended to invite you to experience the stories I write with the characters and settings I imagine: that is, the animals living in and among the strong roots and wide branches of live oaks along the Southern Coast.

Each of my sculptures is hand-built using clay, slip, velvet under-glaze, and high-fire glaze. Details are added using fiber, polymer clay and other found materials.
