Rod Penner


acrylic on canvas
5 x 7 1/2 inches

Canada-born, Texas-based artist Rod Penner seeks out abandoned and forgotten landscapes in small Texas towns as the subject of his small-scale, photo-realistic paintings. Though clearly remnants of once prosperous times, his chosen scenes possess a warm, cinematic quality, in part due to the beautiful light quality Penner captures through his meticulous painting technique. As meditations on the recent past and the passage of time, they are surprisingly evocative, familiar places. Penner’s work has been shown in group exhibitions such as Hyperrealism – 50 Years of Painting, Kunsthal Rotterdam; Photorealism. 50 Years of Hyperrealistic Painting, which traveled to Kumu Art Museum, Tallinn, Musée d’Ixelles, Ixelles, and Osthaus Museum Hagen, Hagen; and Hyperrealism 1967 – 2013, Museo de Bellas Artes de Bilbao.
