This exhibition of works spanning over two years charted Judy Rogers’ long-standing interest in the still life genre, the genre through which she explores her primary interest, the subject of painting itself. This suite of beautifully observed still life paintings of familiar objects, arranged unusually, reflects on our relationship with food, over-consumption, beauty standards and body image.
