When confronted with the large scale paintings of Terry Rodgers, the viewer is struck with compositions that overwhelm the picture plane. Rodgers enlists people that he meets in public to pose for his photographic studies. The resulting images are used to formulate these lavish fabrications.

Not unlike the 1958 classic horror film, “The Blob,” victims in this universe are ensnared in a domineering residue of commerce. The frivolous privilege illustrated recalls lessons from an earlier Empire. Instances when emotion is displayed in this world are often greeted with a severely passive eye.
