Roger Colombik lives in the Texas Hill Country with his wife and artistic collaborator Jerolyn. Born and raised in Chicago, the city’s monumental sculptural presence helped to define his understanding of the relationship between the artist, the community and public spaces. His Socially Engaged-based projects are often undertaken in milieus where traditions and cultural heritage have collided head-on with westernization and government malfeasance. Rooted in the tradition of documentary studies, the projects utilize contemporary formats that include large-scale photography, publications and intervention. Fulbright Scholar Program, CEC Artslink and the Texas State University Research Program have supported Roger’s projects including work in Burma, Armenia, Republic of Georgia and Ecuador. Roger and Jerolyn recently developed a project in collaboration with International Rescue Committee – Abilene and The Grace Museum to examine issues of assimilation and citizenship for families resettling in Abilene from Congo, Burundi and Nepal. Roger teaches sculpture at Texas State University.
