Painting allows me new ways to express the layers of feelings that come with trying to live life in a meaningful way despite my severe physical constraints. Throughout my unique experience as an artist and male with no arms in a society geared to “handedness” emotional reaction to myself, my work and my interactions with society have always been strong and at times confusing for both others I encounter and myself. My art allows me to both reach out as well as explain some of those emotions.
Painting allows a freedom of expression that is richer and more complex than words will allow. It is non-judgmental and as I view my expressions and my paintings, it allows me to view my previous emotional states from a more objective view and be guided by what I see there to develop a deeper sense of self. Through my changing perceptions and times of reflections on my past works and experiences, I’ve developed a deeper understanding of the relationship between society and myself. During this time of reflection, creation and creativity are their most open to symbols and change, in relation to themselves in time and who people are as developing souls.
Gregory Rogers, a native of Palmer MA, currently of Adams Street in Dorchester, Massachusetts came to the art field by chance but remained because art fulfilled a deep and personal aesthetic need. Being born with Amelia (absence of an arm on the left side), and Phocomelia (absence of most of an arm on the right side), Gregory Rogers uses his feet to accomplish most fine motor skill tasks including his painting.
In 1994, Greg began attending the Springfield Technical Community College Liberal Arts Transfer Program, selecting as many art courses as possible. At the same time, Greg began attending art courses at the George Walter Vincent Smith Museum in Springfield.
Accepted into the 2D Fine Arts major at Massachusetts College of Art in the fall of 1996, Greg continued on for the next four years to receive his bachelor of fine arts degree in painting. During his time at Massachusetts College of Art under Professor Kofi Kayiga, Greg’s work moved from oil painting using traditional methods, to work that involves mixed media on paper. Greg’s recent works have brought him back to oils bringing with him his vibrant non-representational as well as impressionistic style he developed for his mixed media work on paper. The move to abstract and impressionistic style has allowed him a more profound method of expressing the deeper understandings that life in the arts has brought him.
