Sandra Rodriguez

My work is fueled by the provocation of emotions: the void in heartbreak, the yearning desire for a lost lover, the sorrow in loneliness, or anxiety. I want my audience to feel things they’ve forgotten, to provoke emotional truth I often use various theatrical like mediums such as mirrors, glitter and fake blood to allow my audience to be seduced. The mirrors, aid in the manifestation of the audience’s place in the work. The glitter serves as a glimpse of transcendent light. The blood reminds the audience of the kinship between us all, and our mortal, organic selves. It is in these materials that people can find identification, purposefully ambiguous, it is sufficient to provide a unique and personal experience. And if you look at my work and feel nothing, you’re welcome.
