biography

Rodger’s roots are from the east coast of Scotland, but it is the rugged west coast which inspired the landscapes in this exhibition.

It was on family camping holidays in the 1950s and 1960s, where Rodger became aware of Scotland’s mountainous character.

“The mountains which have come to mean most to me are those free standing sentinels of Assynt and further north. Their stark character personifies permanence and a struggle against the relentless onslaught of time and the elements.”

Rodger works with gouache, giving the solidity, density and subtlety which he strives for. 

“Some have described my painting style as uncompromising. I can accept this because I am determined to respect my subject and give it enough time to refine and distil what is essential to me.

Rodger’s mountain landscapes tend to exclude signs of humanity whereas his east coast work is more intimate and more likely to involve human impact on the land
