We came across the work of John Doyle Rogers and want to share it with you. Rather than tell you his story we direct you to his web site where you can read his very open and moving autobiography. The sensitivity and determination with which he has pursued his art is also evident in its creation. The trees in these pictures are made from stainless steel. A material he describes as forgiving, malleable, corrosion resistant, durable, alluring and easily adaptive to an infinite number of finishes. It is clearly a medium he is in love with. He describes it as ‘one of the most erotic metals available’. Maybe we need to look again at how it is used in interiors. More pictures of John’s wonderful trees follow. Enjoy.
And as beautiful as these images are, to actually experience these sculptures is a privilege that is clearly worth seeking out. Our sincere thanks to John Doyle Rogers.
