Pilgrim's Progress - Terry Rowlett

Arkansas-born, Athens, Georgia-refined painter Terry Rowlett has a new collection of recent work on display through the end of the month at the Zeitgeist gallery in Nashville, TN.   The artist, known for his blend of realistic and fantastic narrative scenes that evoke the symbolism and structure of classic Renaissance religious art.  

Rowlett's colorful versatility has garnered him work doing book, album, and magazine covers, but it is his paintings, free from obscuring titles or the content they are meant to represent that deliver the most impact.  His everyday scenes and dreamlike situations share the same intensity in their compositional energy, capturing that feeling we often have where the world thrums momentarily but we're not sure why.
