An Experimental Approach: Art by Sarah Rodriguez
Sarah Rodriguez is a student artist hailing from Corpus Christi, Texas. In their current practice, Sarah takes an experimental approach, working a range of media from sculpture to charcoal to digital drawing.
Sarah’s current studies are focused on digital art and animation. I’m really enjoying the artist’s digital artworks -- Sarah’s digital figures, in particular, are fascinating for the way they showcase a depth of emotion. The artist’s use of layered sketchy lines and sparse colour palettes lends to the sense that these images could be stills from an animation -- each one seems to suggest a further narrative.
It’s interesting to be able to see Sarah’s work with a variety of other media elsewhere in their portfolio. From a wire frame sculpture of a car to ephemeral land art, I can imagine how each of these pieces might help to inform an animation and digital drawing practice.
