b. 1969, Madrid, Spain
The colorful, large-scale paintings of Spanish artist Almudena Rodriguez offer a dream-like vision of modern pop culture. Extracting banal images from everyday media – characters from comics, mythic heros of the past, idols of today – she recontextualizes shared cultural signifiers to highlight the absurdity of a world in which self-perception is determined by mass media.
Her work has been shown throughout Spain, Portugal, France, Serbia, Algiers, Mexico, USA and in contemporary art fairs ARCO and Art Miami. She currently resides and works in Madrid, Spain.
