OFELIA RODRíGUEZ: RELICS AND MEMENTOS

15 November 1999 - 18 December 1999

The exhibition included paintings, works on paper and sculptures which inhabit a world of the kitsch, the surreal and of popular art. At first glance Ofelia Rodríguez's compositions undoubtedly appeal to the Western perception of Latin American popular culture. They are often bright and loaded with images and icons which are familiarly 'Latin'. However, a closer look at the way the artist conceives each piece reveals a much more profound reflection on a range of issues, both concerning her personal and wider identity and that of her country and birth.
