Extracting images, logos and slogans from popular culture, Almudena Rodriguez rearranges these disparate signs on hand-sewn fabrics in an attempt to map out a single vision determined not by original context but through aesthetic thought. Part of a series reinterpreting the work of 17th-century Baroque painter Artemisia Gentileschi, "Abbraccio tea la Giustizia e la Pace" explores the history of pictorial language in an attempt to link modernity to tradition.

Acrylic, aniline, ink, and embroidery on amate paper. Framed.

Almudena Rodriguez

b. 1969, Madrid, Spain

The colorful, large-scale paintings of Spanish artist Almudena Rodriguez offer a dream-like vision of modern pop culture. Extracting banal images from everyday media – characters from comics, mythic heros of the past, idols of today – she recontextualizes shared cultural signifiers to highlight the absurdity of a world in which self-perception is determined by mass media.

Her work has been shown throughout Spain, Portugal, France, Serbia, Algiers, Mexico, USA and in contemporary art fairs ARCO and Art Miami. She currently resides and works in Madrid, Spain.
