Rodgers Terry
Terry Rodgers is an American artist best known for his monumental figurative oil paintings concerned with issues of contemporary body politics. Born in Newark, NJ on September 11, 1947, Rodgers moved to Washington, D.C. early in life before attending Amherst College in 1969. His more recent canvases—lushly painted scenes of lavish parties populated by privileged youth—offer a slight departure from his earlier work, which addressed personal familial relations in outdoor settings. His interest and association with cinematic photography is exemplary of contemporary representational realism, with his focus leaning towards a critique of an over-mediated society. Rodgers' paintings have been featured in many notable exhibitions and institutions, such as Art Basel, the Valencia Biennial, and a solo exhibition at the Scheringa Museum of Realist Art.
