About the Artwork:

This image is an artist’s crude rendering of an event that took place in the spring of 1919 in a town outside of Portland, Oregon. One afternoon, witnesses reported seeing a terrifying humanoid figure levitating above the Earth. An Alien by all accounts!! This Alien seemed to select several of the onlookers from the city park below, and as if they were balloons, these people all shot up into the sky until they vanished along with the Alien being. For the next century these people were held captive in a crystal castle where they underwent extensive gene manipulation and enhancement. Prisoners, they might have been, the captured humans were all trained in philosophy, astronomy, space music, public speaking, psychic fighting and advanced sorcery. In order to regain their freedom the humans were forced to battle a black hole demon in a gladiatorial-esque contest of strength and might before an audience of Extraterrestrial Elites from across the Galaxy. The humans prevailed with ease, for they had grown so powerful that they now out-classed their original captors. They then turned on the Aliens and devoured all with wolfish foricity, delivering brutal retribution. Then, as semi-immortal super humans with god-like powers, they flew back to Earth and last year they started an alternative yoga school/retreat in Hawaii. It has excellent reviews online!

About the Artist:

Mark Rogers is a self-taught artist from Portland, Oregon. Stylistically his work has been described as a mash-up of folk art, medieval painting, and fairy tale illustration and his work as found a place among both the complementary Pop Surrealism, and Magical Realism movements. Often exploring concepts dealing with aliens and the paranormal, and death, Rogers uses narratives involving fictional characters to populate his spooky and fantastical oil paintings, which have been shown in exhibitions across the United States. He is represented by Red Truck Gallery in New Orleans, and has a super fat cat named Panther.
