about

Mykaela Rogers (b. 1995) is from Dallas, Texas, and currently lives in Provo, Utah. Through a variety of disciplines, her work attempts to come to know the unknowable through her dreams and theories of alternate dimensions. Her research often includes methods of understanding these topics through physics, absurdism, astrology, and dream interpretation. She graduated with a BFA of Studio Art from Brigham Young University in 2018, and participates in local shows.

artist statement

I believe there is a connection between our dreams and the physical existence of reality. My work is an effort to solve what exactly that connection means to us.
