Rhythms of Life
2014
Andrew Rogers

Born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1947, Andrew Rogers is a self-taught, internationally recognized artist. For a number of years, he practised art as a pastime while working for the family business.

In 1995, he turned toward abstract sculpture and created, among others, Rhythms of Life, now symbolic of his signature work scattered across the globe, including his land art found in the heart of the Gobi desert, in China; on a glacier in Antarctica; in the Yucca Valley, in California; and in the Chyulu Hills National Park, in Kenya.

Artwork description

This work is one of the artist’s first abstract sculptures. Today the symbol of his signature artwork, the bronze Rhythms of Life (1996) is composed of three elements: a curved line, described by the artist as the work’s “lifeline,” a sphere and a sweeping cascade, representative of life’s unforeseeable, unexpected and uncontrollable events. Other editions are on display around the world, including in Israel, Australia and Turkey.
