Daniel Rios Rodriguez: Controlled Burn
Nicelle Beauchene Gallery is thrilled to announce Controlled Burn, the gallery’s first solo exhibition with San Antonio-based artist Daniel Rios Rodriguez.
Rodriguez’s modest scale canvases reconfigure abstraction as symbolic, esoteric explorations that consider landscape, still life painting and vanitas iconography as themes and associations within his practice. Combining the formal austerity of Constructivism with the mystical elements of Surrealism, the artist’s intimate constructions gesture toward something beyond a physical reality. Through their abstruse narratives, the works express reverence for other art forms such as theater, literature, and film.
