ABOUT THE ARTIST: Now a seasoned veteran in the art world, Tim Rogerson casts his artwork with a very evident energy and passion. Inspired by the works of Edgar Degas and Malcolm Liepke, the North Carolina native has embarked on an artistic journey that has taken him from Degas to Disney to darling of the industry.
Using the medium of oil paints, he focuses on capturing people in social settings, “My work will always evolve, becoming more complex and detailed,” says Rogerson.
While studying at the Ringling School, Rogerson gained the reputation as an upcoming artist and influence in his own right. His unique style was recognized when he was awarded the 2003 Best Painter Award from Ringling, followed by 2003 and 2004 Best of Ringling Award. One of his recognized works was an emotionally powerful portrait of “Mr. Lincoln.”
Tim Rogerson’s success had come in the form of an official title. Named an Official Artist of the 2006 U.S. Olympic Winter Team, Rogerson took the POP world by surprise with his colorful and impacting style. Rogerson obtained this designation by working with an official licensee of the U.S. Olympic Committee, Fine Art Ltd. Rogerson’s piece titled “US Olympic Winter Team 2006” was released as both a limited edition giclée in an edition of 250 and an open edition poster. His contribution helped support the U.S. Olympic Winter Team.
“As my personal style is emerging and I break down the composition into simple shapes, with each shape having its own palette – it’s a jigsaw puzzle of color to form an image,” ~ Tim Rogerson.
ABOUT THE FILM: Cinderella is a 1950 American animated musical fantasy film produced by Walt Disney and originally released by RKO Radio Pictures. Based on the fairy tale of the same name by Charles Perrault, it is the 12th Disney animated feature film.
Walt Disney Productions had suffered financially after losing connections to the European film markets due to the outbreak of World War II. During this time, the studio endured box office bombs such as Pinocchio (1940), Fantasia (1940), and Bambi (1942), all of which would later become more successful with several re-releases in theaters and on home video. Due to this, the studio was over $4 million in debt and was on the verge of bankruptcy. Walt Disney and his animators returned to feature film production in 1948 after producing a string of package films with the idea of adapting Charles Perrault's Cendrillon into an animated film. After two years in production, Cinderella was released on February 15, 1950. It became the greatest critical and commercial hit for the studio since Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937) and Dumbo (1941) and helped reverse the studio's fortunes. It received three Academy Award nominations, including Best Music, Original Song for "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo.”
In this fairly faithful rendering of the classic tale, a beautiful young girl is forced into virtual slavery by her cruel, exploitative stepmother and jealous stepsisters. With the aid of animal friends and the enchantments of a fairy godmother, Cinderella is able to attend a royal ball, where she has until the final stroke of midnight to win the heart of Prince Charming. When she is forced to run from his arms as the clock strikes midnight, she leaves behind a glass slipper, which the prince uses to find her. Soon after, the two are married.
