Eunika Rogers was born in Slovakia and moved to Ontario, Canada aged 13. She received an MFA from University of Memphis in 1997.
Almost all her work is rooted in nature and the female body. Inspired by nature, she aims to explore how each one changes with time, focusing on the spiritual and physical connections between body and land. This is a primary reason for painting with clay. Painting with clay is similar to fresco painting, she says. It dries quickly and once it is applied it is difficult to undo.
Wine Series consists of paintings of women drinking wine. ‘I think of a glass of wine held in a woman’s hand; wine, a symbol of life and covenant; framed by her feelings and emotions. I wonder about the time when a woman sits alone drinking her wine thinking and what great things have come from such moments,’ she says.
Rogers lives in Memphis and teaches art in Mississippi.
