Christy Lee Rogers'’ latest exhibit Reckless Unbound, once again reshapes the boundaries between contemporary photography and painting. Without the use of post-production manipulation, Rogers’ works are made in-camera, on the spot, in water and at night. Boisterous in color and complexity, Rogers applies her cunning technique to a barrage of bodies submerged in water during tropical nights in Hawaii. Through a fragile process of experimentation, she builds elaborate scenes of coalesced colors and entangled bodies that exalt the human character as one of vigor and warmth, while also capturing the beauty and vulnerability of the tragic experience that is the human condition.
