He gives a vibrant and dynamic presence to what he refers to as his "Mythofigurative sculptures" He has mastered a difficult art with flare and precision in his desire to capture "just one moment" of a figure in motion." , From the arteutile web pages.

"I don’t know if Rod's mastery of form or his ability to work in different media impresses me more, but I am floored by the combination of the two." from Floyd Brigdon

His goal is to place more figurative art on public display so that the average person may enjoy the life affirming and spiritually uplifting qualities of classical figurative sculpture. "The figurative is a true form of art and beauty to which everyone feels a strong personal connection. Art must be a part of life. It must exist in the domain of the common man. It must be an enriching, ennobling and vital partner in the public pursuit of civilization. It should be a majestic presence in everyday life just as it was in the past"
