FLAUNT (USA), August 2003

Cover Artist: Terry Rodgers

Artist Terry Rodgers has been known to discover the subjects of his paintings while engaging in everyday activities such as perusing a boutique or strolling down the block. It was a fitting irony, then, when his recent shopping spree at a Palm Springs bookstore drew the attention of Flaunt's creative director, who subsequently commissioned him to work his magic for this month's cover. A self-taught painter with an affinity for the realist tradition, Rodgers' often cinematic works capture the style, energy, and uncertainty of the moment while documenting the evolving archetypes of our time. His work can be seen this fall the Marella Arte Contemporanea Gallery in Milan.
