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”.
