Artist's Statement   "As well as I can" (Borrowed from Van Eyck)
 
 

Statement      I like to begin the portrait process with an initial, consultation only, meeting in which the ideas of both parties regarding style and composition are discussed. Following this meeting, a minimum of three sittings is usually required. The first of these will be for the further development of ideas, preliminary drawings and photographs. Subsequent sittings are for the purpose of further drawings and painting, with the majority of work on the painting being carried out in between sittings. The subject should allow approximately five hours per visit for each sitting, which can be carried out in the sitter's home.  
I am happy to offer advice on framing.

Press Quotes
“…..the brilliantly executed work of Stephen Earl Rogers in The Oswestry Connection….”  
Mark Fisher in The Sunday Times, Scotland, commenting on the BP Portrait Prize 2005  
 
“His meticulously crafted paintings have a quirky conceptualism about them.”  
Terry Grimley in The Birmingham Post  
 
“One or two are really striking however…..The Oswestry Connection by Stephen Earl Rogers, which shows a group of young men in enthusiastic conversation, conveys a vivid impression of the personalities involved.”  
John Russell Taylor in The Times, commenting on the BP Portrait Prize 2005  
 
“acutely observed….deftly executed.”  
Andrew Davies in The Birmingham Post  
 
“For the most part though, the portraits here I like best are those which display an old fashioned, scrupulous skill in catching a likeness. Stephen Earl Rogers’ clean, female figure against a vivid aquamarine field is charming, stylish and fresh.”  
Philip Hensher in The Mail on Sunday, commenting on the BP Portrait Prize 2001  
 
“Stephen Earl Rogers also does terrific faces. His profile is artfully observed and interestingly staged and offers the most interesting neck I have seen in a long time. Actually, come to think of it, it is full of interesting detail.”  
Norman Sanson in Art Review, commenting on the New English Art Club exhibition
