Rod Spicer’s contemporary works encapsulate the light, beauty and mood of the Australian landscape. Reminiscent of Streeton or McCubbin the canvases of lush paint, fluid brushstrokes and striking colour evoke a feeling of awe of our natural landscape. Rod’s mastery of his medium is evident with bold use of colour, capturing the mood and light of the changing times and seasons. Spicer’s works transcend time and explore the mythology of landscape, often stirring sensations and emotions in the viewer. This romantic view of the sublime is rendered beautifully capturing both the peaceful and melancholic aspects of the landscapes. Out of the Blue is set to celebrate colour in a suite of new works, exploring past themes and embracing new aspects of Rod’s oeuvre.
Rod Spicer has lived in the Manning Valley for many years and is well known for his beautiful paintings of the local area, from the bush to the coast. Exhibiting regularly in the Hunter Valley and Sydney, his works are included in many private and corporate collections.
