Rod Goebel was a native Texan who fell under the spell of Taos. What drove him to paint was the need to communicate his visceral, physical reaction to color in nature. Heavily influenced by Picasso, and working in the tradition of Fechin and Gaspard, his paintings—whether they are of aspens, snowbanks, waves or lilies in a pond—burrow directly and deeply into the viewer’s emotional memory. In Lilies, Goebel channels Monet’s late masterworks depicting the same subject, placing us close to the water, where the reflective, glassy stillness of the pond, the curling edges of the leathery pads, and the dots of yellow blossom and flower immerse us in a deliberately meditative realm.
