"Women weigh their boots with a wary foot."


Rodney Berg Christopherson

I am an artist who creates artworks for many reasons.  Perhaps the most important motivating reason for my creative pursuits is that I enjoy the process of creating art.  The ability  to contribute something to the world that can be original and expressive of my own ideas, emotions, and life experiences;  is not only rewarding in that it is something entirely original of my own design, it is just plain fun!  I like to make my artworks and paintings something timeless not only in the sense of a lasting material artwork, but also in it’s content.  I don’t label myself or works with words like abstract, realist, organic, geometric, modern or classical because I consider it many of these concepts defined.  I seek to incorporate the basics of art fundamentals with the expression of modernism and personal perception.  I often say that if my paintings can simply touch a person and give them “something”; anything, then I have succeeded in not only giving something to the world around me but I have had my fun doing it.  I do some realistic art as well as more abstract works.  In the latter I like to include some objectivity to give those who do not enjoy abstract art something to bite their teeth into.  I might include a little portrait, landscape, or still life, into my otherwise mainly abstract design.  The works shown here consist of a variety of styles and were painted by myself over the last 17 years or so.  The landscapes that appear more realistic are considered to be “plein air” paintings, or ones in which the artist actually stood at the site and did the painting.  Usually the paintings were done in the linseed oil medium; on canvas, linen, plexiglass, or wood panel.  I enjoyed drawing and creativity as a child and young adult.  I discovered a love for painting and visual art in my early twentys while attending Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.  I have a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art and Graphic Design. I minored in Philosophy.         -RBC
