Inspired by the artist's childhood memories of his self-entitled invincibility when being 'out with mum', this work titled A study for the infantile omnipotence I never grew out of (me when my mom explains whats wrong with me to the doctor) is an iconic example of James Rogers' 3D printed sculpture. 

"I see lots of statues and things of mothers looking after all these good children, but me and my brother were little shits at the play areas and this is how we kind of felt when we would stand under our mom while she had to argue with the other parents" - James Rogers, 2020.

London based artist James Rogers explores figuration in the realm of post-digital, employing and hacking 3D-printing techniques to work with bronze, copper, iron, and precious metals.
