Angela Rogers is a self-taught artist who, after having brain surgery, began creating three dimensional forms by wrapping sticks with yarn. Over time the forms became figurative and incorporated a variety of media like clay, fabric, wire, beads, and talismans. Rogers refers to these creations as Poppets.
She has exhibited for the past 10 years at the Outsider Art Fair and her work has been included in exhibitions at Andrew Edlin Gallery, HAI Gallery, 292 Gallery, Art on A Gallery, The Hole, Outsider Art in The Hamptons, and others. Rogers’ work is in numerous private collections and she has done artist in residency programs at The Ace Hotel, The Carlton Arms Hotel, and Fountain House Studio. She has a lifelong interest in the occult and been a reader of Tarot Cards for over 40 years which has informed her work. She has created several original Tarot Decks and a feminist comic book titled No One Likes a Woman. She also creates visionary paintings and collaborative works with her sister Pamala Rogers under the name The Sisters Grim, is a performer and co-founder of the bands Lone Vein and Ash Negative. Rogers’ paintings have been included in films including Steven Soderbergh Side Effects and What Maisie Knew.
