Working in colour pencil, pastel, graphite, oil, and acrylic, Rodrigo's works are both linear and painterly, realistic and expressionistic. He explores a feeling of the otherworldly by capturing his subjects in trance-like dream states, suspended mysteriously in fairytale atmospheres. His nudes are often surrounded by kindly owls or other iridescent woodland creatures, and staged in forests or haunted woods.
The opening reception is Saturday February 27 from 6-9pm at ThinkSpace Gallery, 6009 Washington Blvd., Culver City, CA 90232. The exhibition is on display until March 19.
