Orlando Rodriguez About
The physical human form and the abstract concepts that
liberate or imprison it is the key to my mythological
world, my gateway to understanding the world around
me in both the physical and spiritual sense.
Drawing has always been the beginning of any process I
emerge from. My gesture of the human figure holds the
purest energy when simply composed of various curved and
intersecting lines with the urgency of scripted handwriting.
When broken down into smaller shapes, my drawings would
constitute more abstract forms containing movement. Over the
years, my process has grown into various languages such
as printmaking, painting, digital illustration, animation and mixed media.
In every process, I find myself going back to the same question
in my mind, 'How do I preserve the initial gesture?'. Each
time, this question leads me to art to find the answers. My
work fills me with a sense of accomplishment and integrity, and
has proven to be a very malleable agent for translating concept and intent.
I place together the elements of the world that surrounds me to
bring forth the world from within me. I toggle control within
my work between techniques of planned and unplanned actions to
contribute to the results. I'm steadfast in employing both
traditional and innovative techniques through my own hands and instinct.
Within each medium there is a stern discipline approached where I find
the stability needed to rein the force of my imagination. I realized
that in every work created, there has been the tension, an edge,
my affinity to contrast, that has helped to influence the final result.
