A HUNGARIAN born visual artist returns to Victoria Park Centre for the Arts to express the human body in watercolours during her eight-week artist in residency program.

Alexander Heights resident Judy Rogers is the second artist in the residency program at Kent Street Gallery in Victoria Park Centre for the Arts.

Rogers was an artist in residence in St Petersburg, Russia and was a featured master artist at Victoria Park Arts season last year.

“It’s rewarding when you have this collaboration, I’m grateful for the opportunity to return,” she said.

“I (was) here last year which was quite good so I’m very happy to come back.”

Rogers said she would work on a series of watercolour paintings as part of her Body from the Suitcase collection during her residency.

“How I approach the human form is I subtracted it down to close-ups,” she said.

“My main practice is working on boards and my colour scheme is quite subdued.

“It’s more on construct and thought rather than titillation.”

Rogers will talk about her residency program during the open session at Kent Street Gallery in Victoria Park Centre for the Arts on February 10.
