Roman Title IV Plain Jane
By Mark A. Rodriguez
June 13 - July 12

If you're out and about in Los Angeles, be sure to swing by Rodriquez's new exhibition!

find his work here :

Hope Gallery (formerly Show Pony)
1547 Echo Park Ave

'Roman Title IV Plain Jane' is centered around the idea of constructions, Mark A. Rodriguez employing a variety of medias, from an architectural model sculpture of the stage scaffolding seen at large music festivals, to collage and pencil pieces depicting children trashing an office building. In 'Study for the Bronzing of a Stadium-Sized Grateful Dead Audience from 1995', Rodriguez uses a photo of the massive crowd at an outdoor Grateful Dead concert and silhouettes the mob in gold sharpie, transforming them into an amorphous golden glob.

Rodriguez has been included in the group shows, Vultures (Manic, Oakland 2009), California Biennial (2008), Psych R & R (Berkeley Art Museum, 2007), and Yellow (Fellows of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, 2008). He is recipient of the Erin Kluk Memorial Award, Yozo Hamaguchi Printmaking Award, and the Barclay Simpson Award.
