Chase returns to Washington, D.C. as the source of inspiration for his latest painting of the White House. "Collectors often ask if my Foundation of Freedom series is politically motivated, to which I reply 'no'. Although I actively follow what happens in Washington, these paintings are created out of a deep appreciation for our country and a fascination with her history and architecture. I am challenged by the idea of taking some of the most familiar buildings in America and presenting them with a fresh vision. Once the painting process begins, I am concerned mostly with 'how things look'. Can I capture the light reflecting off the moisture in the air? Does the snow look crunchy or soft? Are the tree limbs convincing? Is the architecture accurate? These are the things that concern me."
Rod Chase takes hundreds of photographs of each of his subjects, combining them with historical photographs, to produce a timeless quality in each of his works. "Being a photo-realist, I am dependent on finding accurate reference material for each painting," the artist explains. Chase works with acrylics on canvas spending hundreds of hours on each painting as he strives to present a fresh and unique view to familiar subjects.
