About the Show | A New Hello is Nip Rogers’ first solo art show after 4 years. The body of this show features, unseen work from his personal journals and new work from his time spent in Malaysia; a transit where he found love and its twists, Seychelles Islands; where he made his first home away from home, Kenya; the land of Mtwapa and Nairobi, both representing different phases of his life and art, and back to the Adirondacks; home and rediscovery. The progression of his journey is visible through the strokes of his brush and the evolution seen in the artistic choices he made in his later pieces. This solo show is the artist’s attempt at reconnecting with his home and people. Through his paintings, he aims to evoke a nice familiar feeling, a space where your mind can wander to when it is in need of inspiration or courage.
“If you’re brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.”
