The Churchill Gallery
The paintings of New Mexican artist Rodney Wood can be simultaneously beguiling and provocative. His dramatic works, both figurative and still life are sometimes described as Symbolic/Magic Realism or Emotional Realism. They provide the viewer an unexpected opportunity to discover something about himself or the world around him.
“ My paintings seek to explore human emotion. Simply put, they are paintings about feelings.”
Rodney’s remarkable anthropomorphic series fascinates with its unlikely juxtapositions. In Paramour, an elegant zebra waits patiently on a Victorian sofa. The Hedonists depict three flamingoes bathing in a claw-footed tub & in The Maestro, an aristocratic lion sits proudly atop a grand piano.
Fascinated by mythology, the cross-cultural role of symbols and by metaphor, Rodney also draws upon his rich dream life in his creative process. With a remarkable technique that recalls that of the great Flemish Masters, Rodney has created a collection which is at once, timeless and cutting edge.
Representing several dozen exceptional artists from across the United States, The Churchill Gallery presents a superior collection of original paintings and sculpture. We offer a broad range of landscape, still life and figurative paintings, and an expanding portfolio of contemporary Fine Art.
