Mark Rodriguez
Baroque Blu

Opening: July 16, 2006

Location: Primo Piano Livingallery Contemporary Art – viale G. Marconi 4 – Lecce, Italy

The paintings of California artist, Mark Rodriguez will be a part of an international exhibition. Opening this month in Lecce, Italy. Curator, Dores Sacquegna created the Baroque Blu Project in mind to experience a common link between artist and what lies beneath the creative shroud of blue. Twenty eight artists from around the world will participate in this experience.

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.

In Rodriguez work one can perhaps capture the conundrum of beauty versus deformity the tension between the gestalt of the entire work and the visual angst of the particulars. Although rendered and satisfying to behold his work will often point a deconstructive finger at the insanity of modern life.
