Extracting images, logos and slogans from popular culture, artist 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 entitled "Pygmalion Effect," she 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 "Metamorfosis" explores the notion of regenerative change and layers pop culture images and messages ranging from comic book figures to mid-century textbook illustrations. The collision of cultural signifiers soothes and overwhelms, and generates a fluctuating landscape that demands the viewer to trust their own instincts.
