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: Peter Pan is a 1953 American animated musical fantasy adventure-drama produced by Walt Disney Productions and was based on the 1904 play Peter Pan, or The Boy Who Wouldn't Grow Up by J. M. Barrie. Directed by Clyde Geronimi, Hamilton Luske and Wilfred Jackson, it is the 14th Disney animated feature film and was originally released on February 5, 1953 by RKO Radio Pictures. Peter Pan was the final Disney animated feature released through RKO before Walt Disney founded his own distribution company, Buena Vista Distribution, later in 1953 after the film was released. Peter Pan is also the final Disney film in which all nine members of Disney's Nine Old Men worked together as directing animators. It is also the second Disney animated film starring Kathryn Beaumont, Heather Angel, and Bill Thompson, who co-starred together in the 1951 animated feature Alice in Wonderland.
