"Peter Rogiers. CLUSTER"
Venue: Middelheim Museum, Antwerp (2016)
About Peter Rogiers
Working with resin and cast aluminum, Peter Rogiers creates playful sculptures of biomorphic figures that appear to be engaged in monumental struggles. Rogiers’s labor-intensive works—some more abstract than others—are inspired by comics, films, and the dark world of children’s fairytales. His collection “Guitar solos in wicked nature seasons” (2010) features sculptures of bird-like figures—like his 2011 work The Yard—and vague human forms, as well as the artist’s explosive and dynamic mixed media works on paper.
