Mark Rodriguez will be exhibiting one of his wall installations “Attention Given To Something” Fourteen arms modeled in wood are individuality nailed across the gallery wall. Empty frames hang off the nails and rest on each individual shoulder. Perhaps, questioning the attitude that is given or carried regarding America and its faith.

Over the last thirty years the philosophy of Mark Rodriguez has not changed. He believes art is a visual language that challenges emotions and stimulates a vocabulary of intellect capable of transforming a moment into an experience.

Rodriguez works in a number of mediums. Though often called dark or cynical, his painting, sculpture and installation Art. Convey a note of irony and humanity. Working within the realm of visual beauty, he views his work as an attempt to help one understand. “To understand is to question, and to question is to understand oneself”.

Canvas Art Gallery is located in the historic Goodyear Building in Exposition Park. Dallas Texas. U.S.A. Director, Angela Marple (214 – 674 -5143).

INTERVIEW: CECILIA IBETH ÁLVAREZ MORENO

Interviews | September 24, 2020

I was born in Mexico City, my parents were both plastic artists, so artistic expression is in my blood, it is part of me, beyond what academic study can do for anyone. My mother said I was born bored. I am a person who gets bored easily with routine. What I paint, must necessarily take me to a world full of fantasy where there is always an explanation for my reality. Read more

Feelings flow freely into the soul, without control, as the colors on the canvas become one with it. That it is happiness, sadness, love, passion, anger, they dominate us and dominate our actions. Like the flow of a river into the sea, they get lost in the immensity of our being, regenerating itself in the latter, and then share their new life as a drop and source of feeling. This underlines the cyclical nature without a beginning or an end. Feelings are part of us forging our character. Read more

Curated by Mel Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art, This Special Exhibition Examines Parallel Artistic Movements in the 1960s and 1970s in the U.S. and Italy through the artwork of Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Cold Spring, NY – August 24, 2020 – This fall, Magazzino Italian Art opens a special exhibition examining the formal, conceptual, and procedural affinities in the work of Mel Bochner, Alighiero Boetti, and Lucio Fontana. Curated by Bochner in collaboration with Magazzino, the exhibition marks the first presentation to consider the American artist’s extensive, yet overlooked, engagement with the practices of Fontana and Boetti, as well as with Italian art at large. Bochner Boetti Fontana offers, through the artist’s perspective, a number of resonances between his work and that of the Italian and Italian-Argentine artists: an exploration of systems, language, and materials; and a sense of irony and humor, often and especially shared by Arte Povera and Conceptualism, as all these works opened the work of art onto the space of display.

INTERVIEW: ELSA EGON

"Art represents for me a 'ligne de vie'. I have been painting since my 15 years: since then, artistic practice has accompanied all my experiences as a girl, woman, mother. My only safety net in the most difficult situations, today represents the way to seek beauty in the objects and materials we use every day. I often work starting from a material that already carries a story in it, because it has been found, extracted and reused. It may perhaps be recognized by the people who had it in their hands. Somehow, it tells a collective story, piecing together, to establish bonds, but at the same time fixing my experiences." Read more
