Artwork of the Day: "Animal Instinct" by George Rodez
Today’s Artwork of the Day: “Animal Instinct” by Artexpo New York 2010 exhibitor George Rodez. We just received George’s images this morning via email and were really impressed with the vivid colors and lush, imaginative content of each piece.
“Animal Instinct” is part of the Red Collection from George’s Elements & Values Series. Here’s what he had to say about the series:
“It’s all about breaking all boundaries, traditions and rules in creating a body of work that is purely an expression of freedom and an example of how one can create art using everyday household items, such as combs, hair brushes, cellophane wrap, ribbons and clothing material.
These are just some of the many items I used to create this series. In doing this I create a connection between everyday real life and art. I allow the art work to tell me what it wants to be — it directs me. I do not try to manipulate it in any way. I only bring forth the images that I see in the depths of the background as I work on each piece.”
Born in Manhattan, George is a self-taught artist. He enjoys traveling and exhibiting around the world, and he calls Miami, Florida, his home. Here’s his online gallery: www.RodezArt.com
Look forward to seeing George Rodez’ work at Artexpo New York 2010!
