Giclee (jee-clay) is an advanced printmaking process for creating high quality fine art reproductions. The attainable excellence that Giclee printmaking affords makes the reproduction virtually indistinguishable from the original artwork. The result is wide acceptance of Giclee by galleries, museums, and private collectors.

Now you can experience all the depth and vibrancy of Roderick Stevens' thought inspiring artwork. "On the Rocks" will be a strong, attention grabbing accent for any home or office.

Award winning artist, Roderick E. Stevens was handed his first set of oils at the age of seven and his love for painting was promptly born. Initially his works followed more abstract expression since well... he was only seven. In high school, he began exploring realism, and simultaneously discovered acrylics which seemed to better accomodate his impatient nature at the time. Since then he has worked primarily in acrylics on masonite and canvas.

From then on, however, film making grabbed his attention, and cinematography became his career of choice, nudging painting to the status of 'ocassional hobby' for many years. During a particularly stressful point early in his career, Roderick recalls his emotional struggle to re-visit painting.

"Due to my warped sense of responsibility, for the longest time I struggled with giving myself permission to paint. I can remember walking out of an art supply store empty-handed six times before finally reconciling that it was o. k. to replenish some paints and brushes. We live in an ill society, and I was no exception!"

While his work directing the photography of numerous indie films, shorts, and music videos continued to grow, his emotional and spiritual sense remained quite out of balance until a cataclysm of personal turmoil knocked him off his feet in the spring of 2004. "While blessed to find mind altering substances unappealing, I nevertheless discovered that I was in desperate need of emotional transformation and a spiritual connection. I began recovery. . . "

"One of my very first steps in recovery was to get myself back into something that I enjoyed. Something very personal, and expressive of "I". honestly, I was in no mood to paint, but I forced myself to start on 'Rod On Bike'. by the time I had finished it, I remembered how much pleasure I felt from painting, and my passion was officially re-kindled! From that day forward I began painting again at every opportunity. I knew I had to do something with this, and so I started attending art shows around the southwest, and have been having the time of my life ever since. In my search for a spiritual relationship, many people helped me to see how God had a hand on my brush, and I feel incredible gratitude at being able to share that now. "

Roderick quickly embraced the challenges of refractions and reflections. "As a cinematographer, I've always been drawn to such distortions of light and color as found in reflections off of chrome and other shiny surfaces, and in the refractions of glass. For my early pieces, I dove head first into some of the most challenging, but organically beautiful subjects - old coke bottles! You'll also find that I continue to adore artifacts of photography, and include them in my paintings, such as shallow depth of field, and motion blur. These limitations cannot be seen by the naked eye, but are rather only captured in photography. "

Since choosing to acknowledge his gift, Roderick has been honored to receive several awards, been invited to show at the highly prestigious 'Coda Gallery' in Palm Desert, California and was recently commissioned to paint one of the marble horse sculptures for the 'Trail of the Painted Ponies' project, which will most likely be reproduced into the collectible figurines by early 2007. Meanwhile, his work can be found in several galleries, shops, and displays in Palm Springs, Las Vegas, Tucson, Scottsdale, Carefree, Prescott, Sierra Vista, and at the 55 main gallery in Bisbee, as well as on his website at www. restevensart. com, and at many fine art festivals from Los Angeles to Houston.
