Artist Statement
Rodrigo relates his graphic work with strategies that are site specific, to investigate the blurry limits between time and space. Through poetical analogies of Nature and anthropogenic events his work emphasises the inadequacies of the instrumental reason and criticizes contemporary societies through an exploration of the violent relation between life and the cycles of nature. In his work, organic forms arise threatening the arrogant human pride and the course of progress, while visual poetry ennobles human creations.
