Walter John Rodriguez

Out of Line


 

The selected works presented in this exhibit are mixed media drawings with a smaller number of paintings that reference internal reflections conceptualized through a narrow lens of irony and irreverence. Most of these drawings were responses to moments of inspiration when the urge to draw took hold with spiritual presence. In some, the human figure is featured as going through some experience of profound change. In others, the portrait becomes the tool to project a universal and majestic sense of humanity where faces seem simultaneously in a state of divine grace and vulnerability. Moreover, the painted works in this exhibit are anamorphic compositions that invoke world culture and ancient roots through human anatomy, cartoons and animal features developing a narrative that can synthesize provocative ideas about how we place the ancient side of ourselves against the world today. These works fuse pop culture icons and known works of classical painting creating layers of meaning where our collective knowledge is the subject matter.

Walter John Rodriguez was born in Havana, Cuba in 1981 and has spent most of his life in New Jersey. He earned a BFA degree from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia in 2002. Since then, his work has been included in many private collections and used for other public commissions. He has participated in multiple group exhibits in the New York City area over the last ten years and his themes derive from particular reflections on life, social issues, politics and power relationships. His style employs experimentation with mixed media, drawing, anatomy and expressive brushstrokes in order to develop meaning in his compositions.
