Abiding Life: encounters with the human and not so human,
artwork by Australian artist Selwyn Rodda.
Selwyn Rodda is an Australian based painter and draftsman. He trained at the renown Victorian College of the Arts and has been exhibiting sporadically for three decades in Australia and the United States. He works in a loosely Romantic, Symbolist, Surrealist and Metaphysical vein. His oil paintings feature enigmatic ‘biomorphic’ lifeforms in dramatically lit landscapes, largely unencumbered by human cultivation, while his drawings are populated by closely interrelated humans and animals, or human/animal hybrids or therianthropic characters. His work has featured in many online publications and in Boston based magazine Art & Letters and he has designed and executed cover art for poets Thylias Moss and Daniel Corrie. His work is found in private and corporate collections in Australia, China and America. http://www.selwynrodda.com/
