ARTIST STATEMENT

"I am a contemporary  painter who specializes in conflict resolution. I create archetypes that reflect  difficult issues that face us today  and create a mythology that tells their stories to help us overcome our own personal conflicts, also redefined by me as "nepantlas", a 16th Aztec word that means, "in the middle of it". 

 

My newest show, "Crush!  What's Love Got to Do With It?" is an art exhibit that investigates the conflict of modern love from the lens of an over 40 and frisky single woman using online dating apps.  During my investigation dating , it was challenging to  keep our conversations optimistic . We enjoyed our times together, but we were "crushed" from the disappointments of life and I was "crushed" that I never heard from them again. 

 

Why does love have to be so difficult?  Two archetypes, one named "Gone", representing an older woman in menopause, and "The Unbroken" an older man, who has been abused, in which their contemporary mythology is one of tragedy and hope. "

LEGENDS FROM THE REALM
OF NEPANTLA
2008-2018 
MY LIFE AS A COMIC STRIPPER: Isis Rodriguez' early work focused on labor activism. Using the cartoon to de-mystify the sex industry, her works are satirical commentary on the rewards and consequences of exotic dancers in San Francisco’s entertainment district. Is it freedom of expression or exploitation?

GLYPHTOONS: Isis Rodriguez uses cartoons as symbols to paint an intimate mythology based on her personal experiences with exotic dancers.

"The cartoon is an elegant, minimalistic drawing of the realistic figure, and the realistic figure is just an over-rendered cartoon. "
