Michael Rodriguez work is rooted in his interest in geometric and gestural abstraction as well as process. He is engaged in the process of making the work as in “process based art” as well as a "pictured "process. The work is an aggregate of simple almost mechanical marks and gestures each meant as both signifiers for multiple modes of abstraction and the pictorial simultaneously. To think of the work is to think about process twice.
Michael is a native of Miami Fl. A graduate of Miami Dade College and FIU class of 1989. He moved to NYC in 1989 and received my MFA from Brooklyn College and attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 1992. I have exhibited my work internationally and am the recipient of a Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant for painting, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship for painting and a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant. My work is in numerous collections including the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, NY.
