Artist A.J. Rodriguez
 
Artist Statement:
A.J. Rodriquez has always had a passion for sketching and painting. His late-grandmother would provide him with notebook paper to draw on every day in his youth, he was always partial toward drawing on cardboard. Over the years, he has created many pieces of art often donating them to admirers of his work. It is not uncommon for restaurant owners throughout San Antonio to have torn butcher paper sketches of his work where he is often known to sketch before and after meals.
 
AJ’s process begins with a thought, theme or feeling, followed by a rough sketch (sketches and studies almost always accompany his larger paintings). He enjoys painting big, bold pieces that cover a canvas with bright deep rich colors. He is partial to acrylic, metallic, and ink. This show debuts his endeavoring with oils. His paintings have thick strokes in his impressionistic, abstract art. Those observing his work often comment on the movement, shape and multi-dimensional qualities.
 
A.J. was most encouraged by his wife Estelle to take up his palette and brushes once again; she is considered his artistic, and obviously, most trusted advisor, hence “Colecciones de art’ – A.J.’s birth name and “+e” for Estelle. He works from his studios in King William and Lone Star Art Space.
 
A.J. spent time in Mexico City visiting Plaza Mexico researching the pageantry, mystique, brutality, vividness and beauty of the traditional Spanish Bullfight. In this latest series titled “Colores e Imágenes; Arena y Sangre” A.J. works to inspire each observer to suspend judgment of the activity and outcome of this centuries old event and rather focus on the spectacle of the colors, movement, grit and illumination of the intimate relationship and final dance between man and bull. Hemingway comments in “Death in the Afternoon,” “Bullfighting is the only art where the artist is in danger of death…” A.J. was inspired by this level of passion and ultimate commitment to artistic expression.
