ARTIST STATEMENT

After ending a 10 year relationship, my friends encouraged me to use dating apps. Crush! is an art exhibit that I decided to do because I was surprised how the landscape of  love has changed. Very little is known about how people navigate love after 40. My art is a contemporary mythology based on my own experiences as a 55 year old single woman in search of love in a modern world.

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. "
