Alexander Rohrig - "Beyond The Picket Fence"
Alexander Rohrig’s new series of oil paintings draw upon a wealth of spiritual, intellectual, and natural sources of inspiration. Not just capturing a romanticized version of pastoral life, these complex compositions illustrate farm life from the artist’s perspective, which is chaotic, violent, noisy, and full of hard work. Incorporating both subtle references to art historical and biblical allegory, these paintings explore human interaction with the natural world and our place in it. “All my work draws you into the story I am telling. There's a visceral energy displayed of the hard work between animals and people. It transcends the commonplace and transports you to the power that holds the universe together.”
