Cool Art...

Just discovered this artist, name is Terry Rodgers. I really like his work. Here's a link to his site. Besides all the attractive women, haha, I love the sets, the theatrical aspect of the paintings, and the way the figures are placed within the paintings. And the lighting and tones are great. Everything seems so glossy... And there are lots of different objects and different materials, fabrics (or lack thereof), it all works really well together. There seems to be so much going on, but it doesn't feel like too much. I'd like to see his work in the flesh to see how it's painted, doesn't seem too tight, but it's hard to tell from photo images.

The work reminds me of the artist Jack Beal, but I don't like Beal all that much, I find his stuff pretty boring and I don't really appreciate the way he paints and I don't like his colors. I guess Beal's work is theatrical, that's why Rodgers reminds me of him.

His work reminds me of those kitsch pulp covers of the sixties.

I very often use necklaces for tops. It showcases my boobies.

If Rambo were lurking in the background, this would look like a typical day at Sebastien's place.

Mariana: Yeah, I like that connection!

Fringes: That's hot!

Taarzaan: Oh, I only wish. I'd be in the back snorting coke off some lady's breasts...
