CRUSH!

What's Love Got to Do with It?

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

 

"My newest show, "Crush!  What's Love Got to Do With It?" is an art exhibit that investigates the mythology of modern love from me,  the lens of an over 40 and frisky single woman.  The word "crush" has double meaning. You can have  a "crush" on someone and can be "crushed" by  the outcome of a new relationship. I spent a year and a half dating online and in bars, clubs discovering that there is a new perspective that is rarely revealed in art, which involves new slang, new archetypes that embark on a journey that redefines the human condition.

EARLY ART WORKS 1997-2007

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.

ARTIST STATEMENT

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