Rod Chase | Mail order Art
Rod Chase was born in Canada but is now a US citizen. He specialises in incredibly detailed photo-realistic landscapes of his adoptive home. Rod’s work has been exhibited across the USA. A talented photographer as well as painter, Rod fuses these two to create his wonderful compositions. Spending literally hundreds of hours on each painting, it is easy to see why Rod Chase is so popular. The attention to architectural detail and use of light are something to behold, with iconic scenes from the most famous cities in the world. We are fortunate to have a selection of his work from New York City and Italy available here for you today.
Light and colour give a new perspective
Rod Chase uses a number of references for his pieces. As well as first hand inspiration and hundreds of his own photographs, Rod also selects carefully chosen photographic reference material from the present and the past to help create the perfect mood for his scenes. Central Park at Night is a wonderfully evocative winter scene showing the city lights reflected in the water of the park’s waterways and the snow-capped trees are translucent and sparkling. It really is testament to Rod’s skill that scenes such as this and Glory San Pietro with its city lights reflecting in the harbour waters,are so exquisitely detailed that it requires real scrutiny to separate these paintings from their photographic counterparts. Rod even considers how the photograph was originally taken, whether a panorama or a detail.
Embellished images to give added depths
As well as these beautifully detailed paintings, Rod Chase’s prints include specially designed glass prints with a glittered resin applied to the embellished glass giving sparkling highlights to his winter scenes as in New York Winter Nights – MP58. These special editions add an extra dimension to these already extraordinary pieces. The embellishments on these pieces are subtle and give such a new dimension to the piece that you may find that guests spend more time looking deep into the art on your walls and little time in chat – but that’s what you have to expect if you choose a piece of Rod Chase’s work!
Rod’s work is instantly recognisable and his paintings of Italy, New York and Washington DC are hugely popular, and we are fortunate to have a number of these pieces available here in a number of different sizes and formats at great prices.
