Working in oil and staging his scenes with friends and family, Rochfort creates moments that are both stunningly immediate and yet rich with suggested backstory. Film noir, old Hollywood, comic strips and Norman Rockwell jostle for position on these compelling canvases. Rochfort is one of Britain's most exciting narrative painters and an artist with significant international appeal.
"My paintings are snapshots of moments in time, often idealised and always entirely staged using my friends and family as models. I see myself as the director, shaping my chosen scene until I am happy and then using this is a groundwork to start painting. My focus is on structure and gesture, colour and composition and always seeing the paint at work when you get close."
