My most recent works are collages made up of cut-up chips of commercial paint. I have been constructing atmospheric abstract fields of vision that only, after close examination, reveal the geometric structures of component parts. I leave out all type of narrative from my work, as I want it to stand only on its visual impact. The work is comprised of a geometric structure, which evidences the presence of the human gesture. It also uses richness of color used by optical artists, who used geometric modules that originate a double visual reading that determines the effect of a kinetic illusion. The work combines the absolute control of the structure with the visual flow of color. The appearance of the works is that of a rich, vibrating surface, which only upon close examination is similar to a highly pixilated computerized image. -Rafael J. Rodriguez
