ARTIST STATEMENT - Felicity Rogers

Based in Auckland, New Zealand I first took up photography in 1996. Since
them my images have developed from the Darkroom to Digital Imaging and 3D
Computer Animation. My passion lies in conjuring up magical scenes of
surreal conceptual imagery.

I currently use an Olympus C-4040 Digital Camera, with 4.1 mega pixels. Each
image is made up from about 5 photos and combined together in the computer
using Adobe Photoshop.

When viewing my art work, I prefer that people create their own
interpretation of the images, or simply enjoy them as a visual medium. As
an artist, I am interested in capturing those elusive images that dreams are
made of. My photography is very much about exploring the imagination. I
hope that my images inspire others to seek out their own "Dreamscapes".
