About Wheat Field

This abstracted landscape by Otto Rogers reveals the indelible impression of the prairie landscape on the artist. The horizon line is a recurring motif in Rogers' painting, regardless of the degree of abstraction the horizon always betrays his preoccupation with landscape and our relationship to it. A moody grey sky occupies the top half of this composition, while the bottom is comprised of a uniquely textured wheat field that is being ravaged by prairie wind. In a unique compositional strategy Roger's sun reveals itself as a glowing absence of raw canvas in the top left.
