Rodger Roundy

Much of my work is concerned with allegorical representations of young women’s rites of initiation into womanhood. Perhaps because I grew up in a house full of boys, the rituals and behaviors of women have always been fascinatingly opaque to me. These paintings, as well as celebrating the formal possibilities (even clutter) of multiple female bodies, also explore the lighter and darker sides of female group dynamics. These images have the potential to be problematic and complicated. I like them exactly for these reasons: they reflect back the mixed messages of my upbringing.
