Janet Siegel Rogers

Biography

Janet Siegel Rogers is an award winning artist who earned her Masters of Fine Arts from the Pratt Institute. In addition to completing an arts fellowship at Pratt, she was the recipient of the prestigious Mellon Foundation Grant. The central theme of her body of work is a fusion of 20th century Expressionist brushwork and Minimalist aesthetic. Living in the Far East for many years has greatly influenced her aesthetic sensitivity. The rhythmic texture of her technique creates movement but also refracts light from the canvas, illuminating her paintings from within. Her abstract works do not contain any subject matter that could guide the viewer’s perception of her color palette. The viewer is meant to psychologically engage with the colors of each of her contemplative works. Rogers has taught various grade levels from kindergarten through graduate school. Her work has been exhibited in the US, Europe, and Asia and can be found in the permanent collection of The Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale, The Boca Museum of Art in Boca Raton, FL, The Museum of Art in Deland, FL, and within various private collections worldwide.
