Notes

Neil Rodger was born in 1941 in Mowbray, Cape Town. He now lives and works in the Eastern Cape, where he thrives on the austerity and solitude of the region. It seems that this environment is conducive to the enigmatic silence so characteristic of his finest work.

“A beautiful girl holding a chicken, these are certainly strange companions in a painting. I painted the first version of this subject many years ago. I was surprised at the extraordinary reaction collectors had to this image. Since then the girl and cockerel have become, I suspect, synonymous with my work.”
