A San Francisco based visual artist, Eugene Rodriguez’s work includes film, painting, printmaking, and installation. Aesthetically, his artwork incorporates theater, neorealism, and surrealism and then utilizes multiple painting and storytelling approaches to create a kaleidoscopic hybrid.
Rodriguez’s latest work sharpens his focus of attention on how the popular media promotes a thin and anemic interpretation of history. He asks, “What if we were able to do away with this makeshift account and consider a more complex chronicle where those who have been excluded are animated?”
Eugene Rodriguez’s films and videos have been featured in numerous national and international festivals. His paintings, prints, and drawings have been featured in solo exhibitions in New York City and San Francisco as well as group exhibitions across the country. In addition to exhibiting, he has curated exhibitions and lectured extensively on “Transforming Arts Curriculum for the 21st Century” across the country.
