Angie Rogers

Angie Rogers works from Brooklyn studios in Hebden Bridge, a former textile mill town famous for its steep wooded hills and idiosyncratic 'double-decker' houses set in the South Pennine moors of West Yorkshire.

Originally from the West Midlands, Angie studied at Leeds University in the late 1970s and later at Bradford College where she specialised in fine art Printmaking gaining a distinction on completing her MA. She moved from inner-city Birmingham to Hebden Bridge in 1987 and has remained there ever since, a willing captive drawn to the dramatic landscape of this part of Yorkshire so different from the rolling farmland and gentle hills of Warwickshire and Worcestershire where she grew up.

For the Watershed Project in 2011 Angie took a close look at Water: as a mysterious substance in its own right, as a transformative elemental force in the landscape and as a conduit for exploring the human desire to contain and control nature. 

Her work was a response to the amazing network of drains, dams and reservoirs constructed by the water engineers, and the wild and changeable weather systems over the high moors that feed the whole cycle. Angie believes there is no substitute for making work outside and has previously taken her portable printing press out into the landscape when working with community groups.
