George Rhoads,
Mexico, 1956. Oil pastel on paper.

“George Rhoads is a ‘visionary’ painter. He uses images not to tell us something about his visual sensations, about the way his eye responds to seen objects, or to tell us something exclusively about himself, about his personality, as the action painters seem to do; he presents us with a way of viewing and of imagining, that is, of thinking about and of dealing emotionally with ‘reality’. . . I think it is art of a high order.”

-William Steig

“Of the infinite ways of seeing the objective world, I subjectively choose those that move me in ways clear to me but impossible to translate in words from the language of painting. These are not necessarily the pretty, the spectacular, the dramatic, the mysterious, or the memorable, but may include any of these. I strive to convey my intangible world by means of the tangible. I let paintings paint themselves without knowing exactly where I’m going until I get there. I see something that seizes me—a cloud formation, light on water, trees against the sky—and that becomes the first step into a painting. Then I grope and feel my way, following the vision and emotion that first inspired me.”

– George Rhoads
