Congratulations to George Rodriguez for being honored as emerging artist by the Museum of Northwest Art.
“My work blends my interest in human psychology, community and love for decoration and embellishment. I love to see people smile and the stories I build make that possible.
Through the narratives I choose, I bring whimsical, serious and approachable aspects into my work. I realize that even when the content is heavy it can still be presented in a light manner. I also enjoy the artistic aspect of folk and craft objects. These objects are more visible and welcomed because of their light and approachable qualities. I find it important that my work be accessible to everyone who looks at it. This accessibility manifests itself through humor and decoration.”
