Breaking the Ice
Abstract Expressionist paintings by Roger Book

June 14 - August 18, 2013

Roger Book's process allows each piece to develop a life of its own. While he does not preconceive the subject matter or force the painting into one direction or another, his vision continually focuses on light, color, spirituality, and to push back into space in order to find what lies beyond the two-dimensional plane.

In his early years Roger lived in Iowa working in retail. His journey as a painter didn't begin until the age of forty three when he decided to take a risk, leave retail, and attend Green Mountain College in Poultney, Vermont. He graduated with a B.F.A. degree and went on to earn a master's degree in painting from the Rochester Institute of Technology. However, to him, his true understanding of painting came soon after when he studied under Nick Carone and Paul Russotto at the International School of Art in Montecastello, Italy. The one-on-one training he received from them inspired him to pursue painting fulltime, to challenge himself, and to take risks in his work.
