About his work Paradise, Rhode has stated: "Paradise looks at the colour palette of Monet's garden. My intention is to shift away from the depiction of a cultural object or image and to rather abstract any form of cultural identity so that the narrative becomes even more displaced, almost non-representational of a value system. I would consider my new shift towards 'colour abstraction' as quite refreshing within my own practice but also within the context of South Africa that is so geared towards depicting the African experience in impressionistic, figurative, and symbolic forms. My path is towards an African abstraction and my field is the ever increasing dimension of what drawing can be."
