Rodick’s new series, untitled selves, has its first Toronto showing during the Festival. Evolving from earlier self-portraits and portraits of his parents, the images represent another stage of Rodick’s engagement with memory and mortality. Emptied of colour and stark in contrast, these self-portraits are in an active state of transformation and dissolution. They suggest something beyond evanescence—an unmooring perhaps, or a sense that life is “as much syncope as it is experience.”
