2019 Pure War

John Colle Rogers

May 19th- August 15


Rogers' work explores the American obsession with acceleration, aggression, and adrenal pursuits. Created from a mix of hard and soft materials, the sculptures range from fantastic creatures made of decommissioned firearms to intimate textile maps of abandoned missile silos.

Rogers grew up in Grand Forks where his father, the late John H. Rogers, was the much beloved founding Dean of the College of Fine Arts. He currently resides in Oakland, CA.
