“Rodgers arts gets straight to the core of her subject. She really inhabits the spirit of her creatures, just as they inhabit hers. It is about the flesh and bone beneath the skin, pulsing visceral forms that express the physicality and raw energy of the animal world nature at its most untamed.
The Diversity of Rodgers work has seen her designing and producing sculptures with Marvel films for the sets of Guardians of The Galaxy and Avengers Age of Ultron, and in 2017 Rodgers was commissioned by the family of Cilla Black to created a public art sculpture of “Cilla” which is now a permanent feature outside the famous Cavern Club, Liverpool.
