Matthew Rogers’ current work has emerged out of an interest in representing crowds — participants in urban life — as they ‘stream together and move apart, as they rush through from place to place or group together in anticipation for an event. I steal away moments from these endlessly shifting urban scenes, so as to arrest their mood, pattern, character and pace, and to reveal subtle human relationships’. [see also the artwork of Zack Paul]
