Description Leaf shapes dance across a painterly ground of grey, sand and black in this poised composition by Otto Rogers. Rogers work, rooted in a cubist-constructivist tradition, explores themes of motion stillness, unity in diversity.

Otto Donald Rogers (1935-2019) taught at the University of Saskatchewan (1959-1988) after receiving his MA in Fine Art from the University of Wisconsin. In 1963, critic Clement Greenberg recognized Rogers as a “big attack” painter and his artwork, rooted in the traditions of cubism and constructivism, as having a “fullness of inspiration.” Rogers helped sustain the Emma Lake Workshops, a meeting place for some of North America’s leading artists including Barnett Newman, Jules Olitski and Rogers himself. Rogers’ work is held in more than 30 public collections including: the Art Gallery of Ontario, the National Gallery of Canada, and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
