Samuel Rodriguez has announced an upcoming solo show at Cukui, where he will be exhibiting his latest body of work. Fusion Makes the World go Round “involves questions and ideas of classification and identity.” Considered as a ‘Hispanic’ in the US, American in Mexico, and even Middle-Eastern, European, and even part Asian to some, Rodriguez’s latest show will aim to confront various themes relating to culture and identity perception.
“There are countless ethnicities, cultures, genres, styles, chemicals, and elements that have meshed together throughout world history, so fusion literally drives the universe. This has inspired me to paint study portraits of dissected faces using visual ingredients and cues, similar to a land map and all its imposed borders.”
