Terry Rogers

Terry Rogers is best known for his large figurative oil paintings of American society and culture- Oil on Linen
. At his website you can purchase books of his work The Apotheosis of Pleasure and Dimensions of Ambiguity.

The Apotheosis of Pleasure
, published by TORCH Books of Amsterdam, is the first comprehensive full-color catalogue to feature the work of this artist who will surely be recognized as on of the most important painters of the early 21st century.

Dimensions of Ambiguity
includes more than 50 new works — selected in conjunction with the artist. It is accompanied by ‘The blessing and curse of sex appeal—You just might get what you ask for’, an insightful critical essay by Dr. Eva Karcher, the acclaimed author of Otto Dix, 1891-1969: His life and works (Taschen, 2002). In this piece Dr. Karcher investigates the ambiguities of contemporary desire as portrayed by RODGERS; and provides a thorough art historical background to its iconography and the artist’s working methods. Dimensions of Ambiguity alternates views of Rodgers’ new paintings in their whole with chosen details and close-ups. In this manner the reader is able to appreciate the fragmented and delicate brushwork that underlies Rodger’s grandes machines, which remains invisible to the distant eye.
