Rodney Graham studied at the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University. He is associated with the "Vancouver School" of artists, which includes Stan Douglas, Ken Lum, Ian Wallace and Jeff Wall.

In 1979, Graham started using an innovative version of the camera obscura - a technique that has been used by artists and scientists for centuries. The camera obscura involves light passing through a small hole into a dark room, creating a sharp inverted image on the wall. This technology led to the development of still photography and motion pictures. Graham's fascination with the technique and it's parallels with the principals of human vision led to his breakthrough series of inverted trees. Canadian art history is replete with images of solitary pine trees, and Graham's choice in Ponderosa Pine No. 3 comments on this ubiquitous, widely distributed species throughout North America. In its lone focus and presentation the picture seems to reject the expected nationalist, romantic, and symbolic messaging traced throughout Canadian Art.

Graham has been widely recognized for his work, having been included in major contemporary exhibitions such as documenta IX, the Whitney Biennial, and the Carnegie International. He has been the subject of solo exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. In 1997, he represented Canada at the Venice Biennale. Graham has received numerous international awards, including the Gershon Iskowitz Prize, the Kurt Schwitters Prize, and the Audain Prize for Lifetime Achievement in the Visual Arts. In 2016, he was appointed an Officer of the Order of Canada. His work is in the collections of Centre Georges Pompidou, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the National Gallery of Canada, the Vancouver Art Gallery and the Rennie Collection. Graham resided and worked in Vancouver.
