Bill Rogers (alias StellarFire) lives in sunny California and uses that sunlight to create art. He re-fracts the light with crystal filters and capture the colors with a high resolution digital camera.
“The sun is my muse, the rainbow my palette. My art is a celebration of light and color. The great impressionist Claude Monet said the true subject of his art is the light. For me, it's the colors. I explore the relationships between color and form. The abstract approach allows my imagination to run free. I go where the colors take me, they inspire my creativity. Fireworks dis-plays, laser light shows, and astrophotography are major influences on my art. As a planetarium technician at Carnegie Science Center, I ran the Zeiss console during star shows and Laserium shows. I also handled the laser controls, and even performed a few unauthorized midnight shows, where we played jazz CDs in the dome and created live improvised laser displays. Today I don’t use lasers, or computer rendering programs, or long exposures at night. I do refract sun-light into rainbow colors and use computer tools to shape those colors into unique art images. Nobody else does what I do!”
