Born in Petropolis, Rio de Janeiro, Doris Nogueira-Rogers graduated from the School of Fine Arts, Federal University with a degree in Art and Design and Interior Design in 1973. Living in the Philadelphia area since 1978, Doris has never lost her passion and sensibility for the exuberant nature of Brazil.
Doris produces bodies of work where multiple possibilities of recurring themes–nature and the environment–are explored in different mediums and techniques. Her works incorporate diverse materials, and range from works on paper to site-specific installations that relate to contemporary issues. Doris’s visual discourse, such as the personal and universal, is manifested in Neo-abstract compositions rendered in a spectrum of rich colors and shapes that the artist skillfully reconfigures. Often the lines, shapes, and textures also bear deeper meanings. For instance, the leaf and pod-like designs found in her works allude to the constant destruction of the tropical forests.
Her professional experience includes national and international exhibitions as well as art education through museums, art centers, libraries, and schools.
