TITLE: ROCÍO RODRÍGUEZ- Divergent Fictions: A Selection of Works from 1988 – 2012

BRIEF ABOUT: In 1961 at age nine, Rocío Rodríguez  ( entered the United States from Cuba. As exiles, her family maintained strong emotional attachment to their language and memories; however Rodriguez learned to navigate between two cultures and through this experience began to view the world with a unique perspective.

     Her works reflect on universal themes referencing the opposing forces of nature, beauty, war, conflict and pain. She transforms these forces suggesting a world where nothing is fixed and everything is in the process of becoming, creating a whole that is based on all fictions and possibilities. The monumental images surround the viewer; sometimes caressing, sometimes hammering the message home.
