Michelle Rogers. Rath­farn­ham Cas­tle, Rath­farn­ham Road, Dublin Un­til Au­gust 9 rath­farn­ham­cas­tle.ie Amid-ca­reer ret­ro­spec­tive of the work of Michelle Rogers, who makes bold, ex­pan­sive, painterly treat­ments of con­tem­po­rary themes, some­times by re­work­ing iconic clas­si­cal paint­ings and painters, Car­avag­gio and Bot­ti­celli among them. Her por­trait of Panti Bliss is di­rectly drawn from Car­avag­gio’s St Cather­ine, and her Eco Pri­mav­era, after Bot­ti­celli, in­cor­po­rates many plant por­traits of en­dan­gered species. Her rough, broad-brushed tech­nique and lik­ing for large scale can also re­call Anselm Kiefer’s epic, oper­atic ambition.
