Vern Rollin III

Sunday, December 8th - 2.30-4.30 pm

Vern Rollin III was born in Key West, Florida. He grew up in Florida, California and Texas. His passion for art was apparent from his earliest years. Natural gifts and sensitivity to the world around him have played the largest role in his success as an artist. While schooling and instruction from noteworthy artist expanded his knowledge of Art, Art History and technical information, Vern feels the greatest achievements are made when you create from inner feeling, emotion and respect for your vision, your gifts, and your craft.

Vern began his professional career as an artist in 1988, creating Abstract Paintings, original Landscapes and Mixed Media constructions. His work is a reflection of his love of nature, and his lifelong journey in pursuit of harmony and balance. Having traveled extensively, his work has been heavily influenced by his journey through life, the places he has seen and the people he has met along the way. Music plays a key role in driving the imagination that is the force behind his work.

 

A true visionary artist, Vern has won multiple awards as a Painter and Mixed Media artist. He believes that growth can only be achieved by continual change and a desire to constantly improve.

"I create each painting to be felt and enjoyed for a long time. My collectors honor me when they buy a piece of my work and knowing that they have chosen one of my paintings to become a part of their home, or business pushes me continually to grow as an artist and as a person. I have been a fine artist for thirty years. My work is a record o my journey and of my love and observation of the world close up. I learned to paint on the land itself by watching the play of sunlight through trees and across fields. Thousands of hours in nature, hiking, painting,, studying, and learning. have shaped me into the artist I am today. Painting is not my work. It is my life. It is my reason for being. I paint to reach beyond my life, to communicate in a way that is real and with no illusions. Sharing this is my passion and it it as necessary as breathing," Vern explains.

Vern currently lives and works in the quiet countryside of Poetry, Texas.

""Closer  to  the  Edge

Acrylic, Plaster, Conte on Canvas

36" x 24"

$ 1795

This painting is very textural with great depth when viewed in person. I highlight the texture to make it stand out against the background. The overall effect is subtle and beautiful. All of my paintings are on reinforced Gallery Wrapped Canvas complete with hanging wire attached and are ready to hang. They are all signed and dated on the back.
Each reinforced canvas is primed with Gesso. I then apply thin layers of Texture Medium to develop an interesting surface. This surface is created to achieve an harmonious balance between color, texture and image. I sometimes impress the texture with wooden stamps that I make or pull specially constructed implements through the texture to create my desired effect. I then apply color with Acrylic, stain, powdered pigment and/or ink. The surface is lightly sanded and more color is applied. This process of addition and subtraction is repeated many times until I have captured the image I want.

August on the Land

Acrylic,  Plaster on Canvas

20" X 20"

$ 965

The canvas was textured with two textural swaths side by side and then finished in warm colors. The inspiration here was August in Texas. I drew heavily from my imagination trying to capture the feeling of the August heat using color and texture. The cracks are symbolic of the land during dry years. There are the smallest suggestions of Aqua in areas to suggest, hopefully, rain later in the year. There is a certain beauty and feeling that comes with summer in Texas. I tried to suggest this throughout this work.

Ancient  Whispers

Acrylic on Canvas

18” x  24”

Urban  Shadows

Acrylic, Gesso, Charcoal, Plaster on Canvas, Wood

30" x 40"

$ 2765

I have always had a fascination for old and weathered surfaces. Particularly old buildings. They hold the history of the life that has been lived there in their scarred walls. There is a beauty in the accumulated years and how they change the surfaces from season to season, like Fall to Winter and beyond. This painting is on a double reinforced Gallery Wrapped canvas, and is signed and ready to hang upon arrival. The surface of the canvas was textured with Texture medium and then many layers of paint were applied, sanded and distressed before I was satisfied with the result. It was then given a coat of varnish to protect it from dust, moisture and the effects of time.

Mojave  Gold

Acrylic on Canvas, 2019

30 "  x   24"

$ 1695

A deeply textural Original painting on a 1.5" Gallery Wrapped canvas. Ready to hang. The inspiration for this painting was the Mojave desert seen from above. So much of the earth is beautiful when seen from a great height. I used warm colors to suggest the heat that is such a tangible force there. It got my full attention when I crossed the Mojave by car a few years back.

A  Memory  of Dreamtime

48" x 30"

$ 3267

Midnight  Till Dawn

Acrylic on Canvas
48." x 36"

$ 3650

A highly textured reinforced Gallery Wrapped canvas. I used a tool that I made specifically to create the horizontal lines at the top of the painting. They are deep and tactile and I highlighted the top edges for contrast. As with all of my work, each step of this painting was controlled. I had a vision of what I wanted and worked in a controlled method to meet the vision in my head. I kept the color to simple earth tones and the overall effect is serene and peaceful. The painting has a subtle elegance that would enhance almost any environment.
