George Rodriguez

Bainbridge Arts and Crafts, Bainbridge Island, WA - Mar 10-Jun 3

by Matthew Kangas

For his solo museum debut, El Paso, Texas native George Rodriguez creates an installation based on his travels to 24 countries within nine months, funded by his University of Washington postgraduate Bonderman Fellowship. As a result, the Indigenous Chicano imagery of his childhood combines with ceramic riffs on Indonesian, Peruvian, Malaysian, Indian and Japanese devotional objects, which influence his devotional sanctuary of people, lions, dogs, and other objects associated with ecstatic ancient cults. He teaches art at North Seattle College.
