Catalogue excerptUpon first glance, [the forms in Rodger's paintings] seem to have been created using a sharp gesture on the surface of the canvas - a splash, as referenced by the titles of several exhibited works. Yet each "drip" is in fact formed with intent: the contours are precise, and each line and spot was painted with great care. This second dichotomy between the random and the intentional positions the canvas as a performance space. The form does not emerge (organic drip), but it is created (controlled form). - François ChalifourBenjamin Rodger gratefully acknowledges the financial support of the City of Ottawa.. 110 Laurier Avenue WestOttawa, ON K1P 1J1..
