Steve Rodgers explores the beauty of typography through his mixed-media art by manipulating characters of various shape, size and color to represent human forms. He disrupts the brain’s natural tendency and desire to recognize the white space surrounding letters, numbers and symbols, combine them into words and sentences, and communicate a specific message. Steve’s intention is to invite viewers to individually experience how letters are discovered, how the juxtaposition of letters form new and different words, and ultimately, how these personal words tell a unique story.

This piece “Alan Turing” celebrates the accomplishments of the gay mathematician who is credited with deciphering German code, helping end WWII and saving millions of lives.
