“Eat Me” – New Work by Collective Member Kathy Rodriguez

TEN Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of works by Collective member Kathy Rodriguez. Titled “Eat Me,” the show is comprised of new paintings from an ongoing series taking from the historical context of still life and food. Departing from the tradition of depicting expensive objects of desire, Rodriguez’s work depicts food in various states of decomposition in variations on still life, or as straightforward depictions of preservative-rich, non-nutritive, yet oddly desirable and accessible food products. In small studies and larger compositions, the content of the work points to relationships with self and body, and with others. But, the paint itself attempts to communicate content about the delectable contrasted with discontent, always tempered with humor.

 

The exhibition dates are August 5 – 26, 2017. The artist will host a soft opening on Saturday, August 5, from 6-9 p.m., and a closing reception on Friday, August 25, from 6-9 p.m., with an installation viewable for only that evening. The gallery is open by appointment, and from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. Please contact tengallerynola@gmail.com or the artist at Kathy@kathyrodriguez.net with inquiries.
