Friday, March 11th Art Soiree presented unique art exhibit where interrelationship between nature and man is understood through the freedom of experimentation and exploration.
For Johanna Rodriguez it all begins with an idea she wants to convey, a feeling about different energy source, or a particular emotion. She aims to capture the idea of permanence vs. transience, as seen through the complex relationship between nature and man’s imposition on it. Through the overlay of materials, technique and subject-matters, her work presents the tension between nature and man, their often-antagonizing relationship, and the potential for harmony between the two. The end result is as ever-changing as the subject, with no pre-defined look or style, thereby supporting the over-arching exploration of the idea of permanence.
Born in San Francisco and raised in Annapolis, Maryland, Johanna Rodriguez currently resides and works in Washington, DC, as an architect at Gensler. Johanna renovates and manages residential properties, while pursuing her passion for painting. Johanna’s work has been displayed in a solo art show in Annapolis, as well as numerous group exhibitions within the DC area. Johanna’s self-taught painting is inspired by her varied experiences, extensive travels and the built environment.
