Indigo City Mixed Media 36 inches x 36 inches

My work takes inspiration from geometry. For me the square and the circle are starting points. And ending points. The square, defined by the horizontal and the vertical: it’s all you need. The circle: a snake biting its tail; the beginning and end; the still point. Geometric archetypes. But there is no perfect circle; there is no perfect square. The beauty of Pythagoras is within our minds. Rendered by the human hand, the square becomes imperfect, and becomes a part of the human world – where imperfection reigns. The rhythm of imperfection is beauty, where order and chaos dance, and sometimes balance. Indigo City is an assemblage of indigo-dyed Japanese paper, which has been cut, torn and assembled into a rhythmic grid.

Frank Rodick is participating in the exhibition “Breath Taking” at the New Mexico Museum of Art

 I have work in the upcoming exhibition Breath Taking at the New Mexico Museum of Art. You can click on Exhibition Details for the museum web page. It runs March 13 to September 5, 2021.
Curated by Katherine Ware, the exhibition considers the social, philosophical, and spiritual issues around breath, which, during this year of Covid-19 and the George Floyd murder, is especially timely.
The piece I have in the exhibition is attached below, with details as follows:
Artist:  Frank Rodick
Title: Joseph (2004/09/26/00/15)
Medium: Archival pigment print
Dim:  100 x 80 cm
Ed: 5+2AP
The image, part of the series Joseph, was constructed using a photograph of my father taken one hour after his death.
