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 "Play Off" layers pop culture images and messages ranging from comic book illustrations to coquettish pin ups to vibrant army fatigue patterns. The collision of cultural signifiers soothes and overwhelms, and generates a fluctuating landscape that demands the viewer to trust their own instincts.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
