Biography from Smith Killian Fine Art:
Charleston native Jennifer Smith Rogers is known for her oil paintings with themes of architecture and vistas seen from towering over the city. Her works weave together the themes of light and architecture, portraying a near symbiotic relationship between the two. “As far as what inspires me to paint, a lot of it is the light and the way it interacts with the landscape.

”Just as her paintings center on light and architecture, Roger’s life has always revolved around art. Raised in a household of artists including her mother Betty Anglin Smith and her sister Shannon Smith, she is used to being around creative people. Also her brother, Tripp Smith, is a fine-art photographer.

Although Rogers is an integral part of the Smith family of artists, she has certainly carved out a name of her own. Corporate and private collectors include Walt Disney World; the Medical University of South Carolina; Ethyl Corporation in Richmond, Virginia; the Family Circle Cup on Daniel Island, South Carolina; and Tristan Restaurant in Charleston, South Carolina.

She is also an associate member of the Oil Painters of America and a winner of the first-place award from Piccolo Spoleto, 2000.

Although Rogers has painted in locations ranging from Maine to Italy, she always finds herself drawn back to the familiarity of the Lowcountry. Her favorite painting times are the late afternoons and early evenings, when the colors are the most dramatic. “I am fascinated with the fleeting light at day’s end because its drama and color changes so quickly,” she says. “It is the most dramatic time of day because you get the highest contrast between light and dark. I am also intrigued by nighttime. Trying to capture the natural light of the moon, the artificial lights of the storefronts, lanterns and streetlights is both challenging and enthralling.” The light’s intensity against the dark of night sharply illuminates the buildings, store front windows and church steeples.

Rogers intends for her bold, thick brushstrokes to create a sense of urgency and immediacy in her work as though she is fighting against time to capture each second of light before it fades. Using this application technique with vibrant, warm colors, she intends to portray not only the landscape, but the mood of a place as well. Her subjects include rooftop views of Charleston, vacant store front windows illuminated by the headlights of moving cars, or desolate windswept beaches at sunset.
