Oil on canvas.

• Rodger makes the observer peeper of an erotically charged, decadent larger-than-life orgy.
• Owing to their facinating love for detail, Terry Rodgers’ hyper-realistic large-size scenes, often with a multitude of figures, resemble monumental history paintings.
• Rodgers depicts the shallow and decadent American upper class.
• Rodgers contrasts material abundance, luxury and sexual arousal with the emotional void and unrelatedness of his protagonists.
• Recently Rodgers’ painting was part of the grand retrospective "The American Dream. American Realism 1945-2017" at Kunsthalle Emden

"The drive to connect, the drive to relate, the drive for sex, the drive to appear wonderful, to be accepted, these are all confused with each other and seemingly in our DNA. And so has it changed? Not really."
Terry Rodgers, 2018, in an interview with Elena Martinique.
