Mexican, b. 1981
“Matter is light condensed”
Mareo Rodriguez’s work is a view on matter, topography and natural territory conceived as a living being, latent and in constant movement. Epidermal stratification wrought by time, with a telluric language emerging, pressing, gravitating, revealing different tensions through the landscape.

“Art is a language and a direct line of communication with an upper source; the artist then in nothing but a channel to materialize and convey that message”

There are two project lines within his creation process between painting and sculpture; where the constant search for new techniques, materials and resources, nourishes and enriches his discourse and deep love for nature.
