Idea Code 16657

The more recent paintings by American artist Terry Rodgers conjure up a vision of the private nightlife of privileged youth, with complex and large-scale compositions that underline the detachment of those portrayed. These contemporary character studies, painted in a representational realist style, draw upon his strong interest in film and photography and seem, at least on the surface, to celebrate decadence. Yet the characters, caught up in the acts of undressing and drinking, actually long for any form of meaningful contact. ‘Solo Spaces’ collects the latest set of works by Rodgers, called “quads” – visions which respond to our expectations through fine-tuned fictions.
