“Clearly influenced by Oriental landscape tradition the most striking feature of H. Rogge Rehders’ work is freshness. Though seemingly straightforward the work has nevertheless evolved from her history of creating overtly political art.”

H.RoggeRehders handles colour beautifully: Her paintings, like most good landscapes, prove that nature is not simple- that the conventional blue of water is sometimes green, white, black or even red.”

‘A visual person first I create poetry parallel from the same stream of consciousness.  Put the two together it becomes performance art conjuring kinetic pictures.’

‘I actually found my voice in poetry,” said Rogge Rehders. “I love producing that commentary.” Both her visual art and writing are about expressing how she sees the world- and sharing that with others. The challenge will be to find a balance between the two. Rogge Rehders is none too concerned.  She’ll let the spirit move her.
