Stephen Earl Rogers has exhibited with Quantum Contemporary Art since 2001. He is a young painter with an impressive C.V. and a rapidly growing reputation.

Painting with incredible realism, Stephen captures physical likeness with clean precision whilst at the same time achieving a powerful presence and depth of character in his subjects. His group portraits sensitively explore the relationships between sitters to create authentic atmosphere. Compositions are carefully constructed to guide the viewer to consider each of its subjects in turn as well as seeing and understanding the whole.

He has exhibited at the prestigious BP Portrait Awards, held at the National Portrait Gallery, in 2001,2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2016. In 2016 his entry (a portrait of his nephew, Haydn) was specially selected for use on all marketing material for the BP Award; and was also turned into a 10m high and 8m wide banner which hung on the front of the NPG for the duration of the BP exhibition.

His work has also been exhibited at Christie’s and sold through Sotheby’s, as well as being shown on several occasions at London’s Mall Galleries. He was recently selected for the prestigious Garrick Milne prize. At Glasgow’s Adapt Now exhibition, his work was exhibited alongside that of Bridget Riley, Mark Quinn and Maggie Hambling.

His work is exhibited by Quantum at art fairs in London and New York and we act as his agent when undertaking portrait commissions on behalf of clients. He is currently working on two family portraits in Hong Kong.

He has been a regular prize-winner at open competitions throughout his career, producing innovative and contemporary works.

Press Quotes
“…..the brilliantly executed work of Stephen Earl Rogers in The Oswestry Connection….” Mark Fisher in The Sunday Times, Scotland, commenting on the BP Portrait Prize.

“His meticulously crafted paintings have a quirky conceptualism about them.”
Terry Grimley in The Birmingham Post

“One or two are really striking however…..The Oswestry Connection by Stephen Earl Rogers, which shows a group of young men in enthusiastic conversation, conveys a vivid impression of the personalities involved.”
John Russell Taylor in The Times, commenting on the BP Portrait Prize.

“acutely observed….deftly executed.”
Andrew Davies in The Birmingham Post

“For the most part though, the portraits here I like best are those which display an old fashioned, scrupulous skill in catching a likeness. Stephen Earl Rogers’ clean, female figure against a vivid aquamarine field is charming, stylish and fresh.”
Philip Hensher in The Mail on Sunday, commenting on the BP Portrait Prize.

“Stephen Earl Rogers also does terrific faces. His profile is artfully observed and interestingly staged and offers the most interesting neck I have seen in a long time. Actually, come to think of it, it is full of interesting detail.” Norman Sanson in Art Review
