I am really loving the charm and little bit of heartbreak that Kent Rogowski evokes with his work. Most know for his series Bears, which came out as a book. These bears are a tiny bit creepy, quite sad, and I just want to grab them love, them and hug them and make them hole again.
His website speaks towards the project and the bears as individuals:
They are at once hideous yet cuddly, disturbing yet endearing, absurd yet adorable, while offering a metaphor for us all to consider. These bears, which have lived and loved and lost as much as their owners, have suffered and endured through it all. It is by virtue of revealing their inner core might we better understand our own.
an artist with a creative mind and a romantic point of view...love it.
