Referencing graphic animations and Japanese drawings, painter Francisco Rodriguez hints at the tradition that inspired the post-impressionists.

About

The exhibition is unified in its limited colour palette and it invites the viewer to explore potential narrative links between the compositions which oscillate between expansive landscapes and smaller portraits.

The paintings are full of insinuations and ambiguity. Comprising intriguing, sometimes dark and inexplicable, spaces and situations, the work depicts windowless buildings, fences, fir-trees and a cast of sinister characters emerging from the shadows.

About the Artist

Francisco Rodríguez graduated with an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Arts in 2018. He has since had a solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Santiago and has appeared in numerous group shows in the UK and overseas. Rodríguez was also included in Bloomberg New Contemporaries 2018 which launched at the Liverpool Biennial and travelled to the South London Gallery. His works are included in several public and private collections including the DLA Art Collection and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo (MAC), Chile.
