My dear friend Nick Turner recently collaborated with artist Michelle Rogers to bring together two bodies of work that meet on many unexpected levels. Turner is a multi-talented artist who, as you may recall, created some rather spectacular images for WIJW. For his most recent work, he has turned his lens on himself in nature to create a series of self-portraits revealing his affinity for, and connection to, the strength, beauty and majesty of horses.

Michelle Rogers, drawn to the tenderness that came through in Turner’s images, wanted to develop a body of work about man and nature and, as it goes, Turner became her most perfect subject: “The idea is how he sees himself or expresses himself in photography and how I as a gay woman paint him—it’s fascinating. There is a real quality to his photography that I relate to, also it is quite rare to have a photography and painting show about the same subject. I felt that would be an intriguing show to see.”

Rogers, an Irish artist living in Rome, has had a rather spectacular career as an artist, receiving awards, accolades and commissions globally. This year the Irish Post Office has published a postage stamp with one of Roger’s paintings on it. Her work will also be on display at Scope with Robert Fontaine gallery during Art Basel Miami.

Needless to say I’m wild about both Turner’s and Roger’s work and I am thrilled to be adding some of their lovely pieces to my own collection.
