Andrew Rogers, a leading contemporary artist based in Australia, is primarily a sculptor. His large works may be found in plazas and buildings around the world. He is also the creator of the world’s largest contemporary land art undertaking.
Derived from an early sculpture, the Rhythms of Life project is composed of 47 land art structures, which can be found in 13 countries and on 7 continents. The project is the result of 13 years of work, and the collaboration of 6,700 people from around the world.
The work is particularly unique in that Rogers has incorporated a great civic vision. The structures represent a process, and local collaboration. At many sites, a common Rhythms of Life piece is not far from a work that is local and unique to the community it represents.
For the first time, images of these works are on exhibition at the 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica, California. 68 large scale photographs of Rogers’ Rhythms of Life project will be on display at the gallery until May 28, 2011.
