Esther Rogoway

Esther Rogoway has lived and studied in a variety of geographic
environments that many artists would find exciting, inspirational and in some
instances even mystical. These locales have become a part of her spirit, but it
is from her inner soul that Esther creates her works of art that can be said
possess a surreal mystique. It is her intent to draw us deep into our own
subconscious world of feeling when we view her creations. Her images
present us with a swirl of color and form, offering the viewer an abstraction of
reality that reminds one of being in a dream scape where everything is
somewhat familiar, yet ebbs and slows with a rhythm of its own. Her figures,
primarily those of horses are easily recognizable, but the nature of each
composition speaks more of an inner world of feeling and imagination rather
than to the outer world of reality. Although you can identify the subjects,
they appear to be only partly there. Each painting tells a story, but the actual
interpretation is in the eye of the beholder.  Her bold use of color is pure and
there is an elegant balance between opposites, or in some cases, the painting
exhibits more of subtle blending of compatible colors. All of Esther's works
exhibit masterful design and use of color .
Esther has recently received The Sedona Art Festivals, first place in two
dimensional painting and The Peoples Choice Award in Tubac.
Esther is the daughter of noted artist Alfred Rogoway, therefore she naturally
grew up around artists, writers and poets. She also had the advantage of
spending her formative years in San Francisco, Big Sur, Sant Fe Taos,
Mexico, Canne and Mijas, Spain, all being communities where artistry was an
integral part of  life. What better background to draw from if one is to
become an artist? The years spent living in Europe were put to good use in
developing her own artistic talents. Esther first studied at the Tunbridge
Wells School of Art in England and later at the Art Institute of Barcelona,
Spain .
Esther takes her love of horses from her own little heard. Two Rocky
Mountains and one Foxtrotted. She is also associated with Equine Voices, a
horse rescue and sanctuary located in Green Valley az. She has fostered
several wonderful horses and donates art to Equine Voices and other rescue
facilities around the country for their fund -raisers.
