Judy Rogers Romancing Botany Exhibition

Community Event

12 Nov 2018 to 7 Dec 2018

Judy Rogers Romancing Botany Exhibition is an exhibition of botanical paintings. Artist Judy Rogers has a knack for making us look, and look again.

Her work brings a sense of excitement, drama, tenderness and even erotica to everyday life. Perth has very few truly original artists with the ability to shock us into seeing things differently, with a visual language of their own. Rogers is in this class.

From a distance her works look like photo-realist paintings. Close up they become cross-hatched drawings using lines to form faces and bodies, like the etchings of Rembrandt or Norman Lindsay.

Rogers arrived here from Hungary 22 years ago with an artistic direction and style that was already developed. She staged a string of exhibitions and won prizes for domestic scenes as she employed her unfamiliar techniques with confidence and authority.

Rogers has now taken to botanica, but she has not become a scientific illustrator. Instead, Rogers uses her well-honed techniques to create “portraits” of plants, just as one makes a portrait of a human being.
