Rogé lives and works in Montreal. He is currently devoting himself to non-figurative painting.

“These four works are a tribute to the poetry of les Îles-de-la-Madeleine in Northern Quebec. I was so inspired by the power and beauty of the surrounding natural environment, a new-found creativity sprung out of me, allowing me to create in a way I had never explored before.”
