A sleeping sense of life according to love. 2002.
Oil on canvas.
Lower right signed and dated. Stretcher titled. 127 x 203 cm (50 x 79.9 in). [JS].

• Rodgers paints the beautiful, cool glow of a decadent and unrelated American upper-class society.
• Rodgers masterfully contrasts material wealth and luxury with the emotional emptiness and unrelatedness of his protagonists.
• With their fascinating attention to detail Terry Rodgers ’hyper-realistic, large-format and often multi-figure works resemble monumental history paintings .
• Rodgers ’painting was most recently shown in the large overview show "The American Dream. American Realism 1945-2017" at the Kunsthalle Emden
.

PROVENANCE: Galleria Davide Gallo, Milan/Santa Luce.
Private collection Milan (acquired from the above in 2007).

"The people seem no less lonely than in Edward Hopper's interiors [.]."
