Extracting images, logos, and slogans from popular culture, Almudena Rodriguez rearranges these disparate signs on hand-sewn fabrics in an attempt to create a single vision determined not by original context but through aesthetic thought. The delicacy of the fabrics is an important part of her work, their different tactile qualities determining the work’s initial conception. With images of clowns, hearts, and a love-struck Olive Oyl, Rodriguez attempts in this multimedia work to provide a road map for navigating true reality in a world steeped in disjointed messaging.

Acrylic and wool embroidery on hand-stitched fabrics. Stretched.

Almudena Rodriguez

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.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
