TERRY RODGERS, BIOGRAPHY

Born in New Jersey (USA) in 1947, Terry Rodgers has built an international career with large-scale complex paintings that raise questions about the contrast between desire and fulfillment, isolation and hope. The vectoral dynamics that Rodgers is known for continue to provide rich and suggestive possibilities using shock realism. His canvases are widely exhibited in museums and galleries and at art fairs across Europe and America. Inspired by the realism of Diego Velasquez, as much as, say, the delicacy of Toulouse-Lautrec’s rendering of a brothel scene, Terry Rodgers exhibits the body to focus our gaze on the world, like a face-lift trying to hold back time. “I use realism to portray fiction,” he said.
