Pieces of Reality: A Twisted Journey Through the Mind of the Artist
August 19–September 19, 2019
Opening Reception: Thursday, September 5, 4:30–7:30pm
Artist's Talks 6:15pm
Mark Rodriguez is a Tampa visual artist whose work is a twisted ride through reality and the subconscious. His self-portrait work is a blend of elements from pop-culture surrealism, humor, horror and all points in between. His Photoshop images are steeped in story and hidden meanings, and they frequently juxtapose the familiar with the unexpected in what he calls “approachable darkness.” He is the recipient of the “Best in Show” 2015 Photoshopworld Guru award. The exhibit is curated by HCC Assistant Professor of Art Christopher W. Weeks, Photography and Digital Art.
