Darryl Rogers


Darryl Rogers is an artist who works with video, installation and virtual imaging. With a distinctive use of media Rogers endeavors to alter the constituent variables of space and time attempting to poke holes in the seemingly impervious materiality of the world around us.

 Whilst Rogers started his career as an artist his trajectory to being able to produce the level of technical and creative quality his work reveals today has included many auxiliary roles such as award winning special effects creator for film, theatrical set designer, museums design consultant, multi media and broadcast television producer to name but a few.

 On encountering one of his time-based installations there is an immediate sense of disorientation, realizing that what is being observed seems to counter the familiar physics by which the world is known.  It is this physical “non-reality” that Rogers explores conjuring characteristics of illusion, miracle, quantum mischief and the metaphysical.
