Art Concept - Mixed media and Photographic technique

Ana Priscila Rodriguez, born 1974 in Mexico City, resides in The Netherlands since 1998.

 

She graduated Cum Laude from the Academy of Fine Arts in Utrecht, The Netherlands in 2006, specializing in Mixed Media and Photography. She has early studies in History and Graphic Design.

 

Her photographic work is intimate, delicate and confronting. With her images she attempts to create a relatable shore for the emotional and psychological human experience. Every image is a window to a story using photography as a medium to create visuals attached to a feeling or an emotion where the viewer fills in the blanks with their own visions. The complexity of the texture and layers in her photographic work creates the illusion of an old oil painting in each of her works, giving a sense of dark melancholy, romance and drama with a tone of classic Baroque. More than a self-portrait, her work evokes everyone’s drama, journey and vulnerabilities. The story starts with her and it is followed by the story of the beholder.

 

Her work, seen as different stories grouped in individual series, is linked usually by the aesthetic of the signature red detail, symbolizing life, pain, the flow and effect of the body and soul experience and ultimately the visual characterization of a living entity interacting with the characters portrayed on the visual stories. The thread is the red carrier of the human experience.  Ana Priscila aims to call into the inner portals of the viewer, providing the elements of emotion and confrontation, while leaving the completion of the story to the beholder, to be filled in with their own identification and personal recalling.

 

Ana Priscila has mastered her own hybrid digital mixed media technique, and she produces digital and paper collage work, as well as analogue images.

She has exhibited numerous times in The Netherlands, Europe and participated in International festivals. She has also been awarded several honorable mentions and distinctions in diverse international photography competitions.

 

For the artist, this subtle way of communication and interaction is what bring her stories to live and what allows it to continue inside the heart of “the other”.
