Kent Rogowski's works are often provocative and whimsical manipulations of objects and images that surround us in our daily lives. From teddy bears, to jigsaw puzzles, to self help books, he uses and alters mass-produced consumer products as a vehicle for self expression. By transforming the generic into something personal, Rogowski questions what these products communicate and also what role they play in our culture.
In 2000, Rogowski received his MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design where he is now a Senior Critic. His first monograph, Bears, was published by powerHouse books in 2007. He has had solo shows in New York at both the Foley Gallery and the Jen Bekman Gallery. In 2009, his first European solo show opened at the In Focus Gallery in Cologne, Germany. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.
