ROSANA LARGO RODRÍGUEZ

Digitally Represented Artist



Rosana Largo Rodríguez is a Spanish artist, whose art thrives on contrast. In her paintings realism and imagination, innocence and the uncanny, personal lyricism and social critique meet to create a dynamic tension. The symbolic vocabulary that emerges from this tension evokes Surrealism and Kitsch as well as the Classical idiom. Rodríguez pays great attention to verisimilitude and careful rendering of details. Accuracy and precision of representation heighten the sense of dreamlike magic that permeates her work. The artist amalgamates elements of the fairy tale, references to popular culture, and fashion in order to explore how childhood and the feminine are represented in traditional and contemporary culture. Children, women, and magical creatures that figure, for example, in such paintings as “Happiness,” “Cyborg,” and “Freedom Birdies” appear to inhabit elaborate, richly allegorical environments that they also question and subvert.

Rodríguez’ artistic process is based in improvisation on a blank canvas, sometimes even without a preparatory drawing. In addition to oil, she utilizes unorthodox materials, such as aniline dyes and other natural pigments that lend her work a chromatic softness. In order to slow the drying process and achieve interesting texture, she shuns turpentine and instead preferences olive oil as her medium.
