My work is a mix of many things, and created in a number of ways. Sometimes viscerally — with brush in hand —fueled by loud music, emotion and caffeine, other times it’s more meditative, working in a deliberate fashion. Either way, the work is pulling from feelings and influences from current events, ideas, design, architecture, and music.

About Rodney Durso

Rodney is a graphic designer by trade, and was founder and creative director of Stormhouse Partners, a branding and design agency based in New York. In 2006, while working and teaching as an adjunct professor at Parsons School of Design, Rodney rented a studio in West Chelsea thus began his transition into painting and fine art. Having created 400+ drawings, paintings and collages since then, Rodney’s work has taken on new depth and meaning but is still grounded in a strong sense of graphic organization, color, type and imagery that speaks to his earlier work as designer.

Rodney Durso Live

I have always been influenced by these many disciplines, especially in the abstract form. For example, I see similarities between the work of Klee, Miro or Kandinsky and free-form jazz, both expressing similar ideas in different mediums — aural and visual. I also find great comfort in the form and shape of good design, and I sometimes bring that love of organization, methodology and hierarchy into my work.
