Rodney Graham


One of the most respected Canadian artists with an international reputation, Rodney Graham's unique conceptual art draws on an array of historical references infused with a healthy dose of mischief. 

Self-representation, masculinity and artistic conventions are repeated themes in his work whether explored through video, photography or more recently via works on paper. 

In 2003 he started to both paint and draw - often directly on photographs, starting a new chapter in his oeuvre. 

Speaking with Blouin ArtInfo Graham explained his shift towards works on paper: 

"I don’t have to worry about technical aspects ...when I paint, it’s undisciplined and spontaneous. Obviously I don’t have a real history of it, and I never studied it in my student years except in the most preliminary way. A lot of people in my generation went through painting and developed those skills before turning to conceptual photography or film or whatever. But it was a kind of conscious return to student mentality, for me. I was aware I didn’t have a lot of skill, but on the other hand, I really liked the challenge.”

This untitled portrait is a paradigm of his more recent and intimate practice.
