about Rod Cadenza
Since I was a child (a long time ago) I have always had a brush, crayon or pencil in my hand. When I was about 8 years of age my parents gave me a beautifully illustrated book on the history of art. I fell in love with the impressionists, and Renoir, in particular.
For many years since I have enjoyed landscape photography as well as sculpture. In sculpture, my portraits have always been of women, and my abstracts have always had soft feminine shapes and forms.
I took a surprisingly long time to realise that the juxtaposition of feminine beauty and beautiful landscapes, was, for me, the zenith of photographic art.
I live in Brisbane, Australia. I have a small studio and travel as often as possible to NZ, N America and Europe, to pursue my artistic passion.
