Extracting images, logos and slogans from popular culture, Almudena Rodriguez rearranges disparate signs in an attempt to map out a single vision determined not by original context but through aesthetic thought. In a series titled "Pygmalion Effect," the artist explores the popular psychological idea that greater expectations lead to better performance, questioning how an artist can influence the viewer’s perception. This mixed media on fabric work entitled "Pygmalion Effect XXVI" layers pop culture images and messages ranging from comic book illustrations to vibrant army fatigue patterns. The collision of cultural signifiers simultaneously soothes and overwhelms, and generates a dream world through which the viewer must find their way out.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
