A Look at George Rodez
George Rodez was born in New York in 1957. He began his career as a mechanical engineer, but art has been his passion since the age of thirteen. Since 1992 he has dedicated himself solely to painting and has exhibited in many museums and galleries, both nationally and internationally. He is a self-taught artist whose strength is his diversity. Having been heavily influenced by the experience of growing up with a mother who suffered from dissociative mental disorder, Rodez observed that each personality had a different strength and function. He has used that lesson and incorporates it into his art, with each style providing different experiences, allowing all facets of his personality to be seen. He believes we should all share our many characteristics and emotions and states that “to live life is to feel all these emotions.”
Split Personality: The Art of George Rodez will be on display in the Garden’s Butterfly Gallery through October 29, 2022. To RSVP for the exhibition opening, please visit mbgarden.org/events.
