FAULT Favourite photographic artist Christy Lee Rogers launches new series, ‘ÉLAN’, with June solo show in London

FAULT Favourite photographic artist Christy Lee Rogers has announced her latest solo exhibition, this time with The Outsiders Gallery in London – the sister project to famous gallerist Steve Lazarides’ Mayfair-based gallery.

Christy’s latest series is entitled ‘ÉLAN‘ – French for vigour, spirit, and an enthusiasm typically revealed by assurance or brilliance of performance. It is a fitting title for her new body of work, another triumph of typically un-manipulated aquatic photographs. The series consists of 24 pieces in total and each will be sold as a number of very limited editions in varying sizes. Each piece has been heavily and patently influenced by the circus and, specifically, performances associated with Paris, such as the Moulin Rouge.

‘La Promesse’

“I was inspired by Paris, the performances of the Moulin Rouge, the old circuses, wild abandonment and that feeling of letting go that explodes out of you like you’re drunk with love,” says Christy of her new work. “I imagined living in Paris during the1920s as a performer, with no possessions except for your talent and art, and how free, yet desperate, that would be.”

Shot in Las Vegas and set to be unveiled in London, this Hawaiian-based artist’s latest exhibition is not to be missed. Already considered a cult artist by a growing legion of fans all over the world, ÉLAN is surely another step in Christy’s inevitable rise to truly iconic status.

Catch her while you still can.

ART13: Exclusive Review for FAULT Issue 14

The first three days of March saw London Olympia Transformed into an exciting hub of contemporary art, packed with international collectors, artists, gallery owners and anyone with an interest in art.  

This is ART13.

Art13’s debut was extremely well received and attended and the fair will doubtless build up as an important event in the global art calendar.

VIP day was very busy with a number of major collectors and a few surprise visitors.

Harry Styles of One Direction turned up and bought Ben Turnbull’s small gun-behind-glass sculpture, In Case of Emergency, along with several other works for his new house.

Other guests included Ron Dennis, executive chairman of the McLaren Group, steel magnate Lakshmi Mittal, American businessman and majority shareholder in Arsenal Football Club, Stan Kroenke, and Dasha Zhukova.

Pearl Lam Galleries, eponymously named after its flamboyant owner, had two stands turned into one and drew a great deal of attention because of the large, bold works, including several by Zhu Jinshi, previously profiled in B Beyond Magazine, FAULT’s sister publication.

FAULT had a media stand, along with B Beyond and the Linveco Cultural Foundation (a registered UK charity supporting multi-disciplinary creative talent). The stand showcased not just different issues of both publications but also the works of some of the artists/members of the foundation who have contributed cover artwork and been featured in the periodicals, such as Christy Lee Rogers, Anthony Russell and Michael Taylor [examples of works on display are shown above & below].

Christy Lee Rogers: Reckless Unbound

 

Before you start yelling Photoshop, just know that photographer Christy Lee Rogers is not associated with the image enhancement program. Blurring the lines between photography and painting, Rogers’ work are beautifully warm examples of what a camera can do when stretched to its limits. Produced in water and at night, Rogers photographs her subjects at night as they are submerged in the waters of Hawaii. Channeling the Baroque aesthetic with her images, the artist takes photography to a completely new level with her latest collection called Reckless Unbound. 

On show in Los Angeles and San Francisco later this year, Fault gives you a sneak peek at some of the images that will be exhibited from the Hawaiian born artist. Capturing reality in such a poetic way, Reckless Unbound transforms viewers to a near fantastical era, one where the ephemeral is as celebrated as life itself.
