Barbara Rogers came of age as an artist during the battle between figuration and abstraction. Never declaring full allegiance to the figurative movement or to pure abstraction, Rogers forged a style that placed the figure in a setting that includes rich foliage, creating tension through the suggestion of allegorical content.This first documentation of Rogers’s life and work details her earliest influences and education, the shift following Hurricane Iwa, and her work that has grown increasingly complex and ambitious. The book documents not only the progressof an individual artist, but reflects the trajectory of women working in the arts in the latter part of the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.
