> DESCRIPTION

The paintings and drawings Rodney Carswell has produced during his stay in Roswell display a continuation of his lifelong interest in abstraction and geometric form, while providing evidence of an increased aesthetic disposition towards subjective and idiosyncratic solutions to art making’s everyday problem of “what am I going to do today?” The products of this exploration are characterized by an intimate scale, attention to material and surface, layering of planar visual space, and eccentric arrangements of form and color.

Rodney grew up in Santa Fe and attended high school at NMMI. He received his BFA degree from the University of New Mexico in 1968 and his MFA degree from the University of Colorado in 1972. After spending much of his adult life teaching and working in the Chicago area, his residency at RAiR marks a permanent return to home in New Mexico.

Rodney has exhibited at museums and galleries throughout the United States. He has received fellowship grants from the John Solomon Guggenheim Foundation, the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Illinois Arts Council. His work can be found in the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Albright Knox Gallery in Buffalo, New York, and the Illinois State Art Museum. Devening Projects and Thomas McCormick Gallery, both of Chicago, currently represent his work.
