Alex Rodríguez

1981, Cali

In Alex Rodríguez’s work there is always an interest in reality as a cultural issue so as an individual order. He’s interested in aspects such as places, characters, or situations that constitute those ideas of reality on a daily basis. Looking for materials that are related to culture and thus can stand for the reality in which they worked before becoming part of his pieces pieces. For example, the use of paper flyers as a medium, or the residue and the object, are sometimes assembled as part of the material remains of a place. The materials he uses have the quality of being from a real place, from daily life. He approaches images as residues too. He uses simple and meaningful images that come from different investigations; drawing, painting, photography are traditional media which appear in most of his works.
