Beatriz Rodriguez paints disorienting landscapes, combining representational structures with ambiguous shapes. This opens her process to improvisation which allows for colors, patterns, and different processes to take place. These arrangements adapt to each other to represent the acts of tropism that surround us and how that relates to places that are always evolving. In her paintings, real and imagined places with different geological elements can coexist to transcend into a new place. Beatriz will be coming from Miami to Seattle, two opposing landscapes on the furthest corners of the country, to be inspired by this dramatic change.
