"Pygmalion Effect XXIX" Painting by Almudena Rodriguez

US$7,880

About

Extracting images, logos and slogans from popular culture, Spanish artist Almudena Rodriguez rearranges disparate signs in an attempt to map out a single vision determined not by original context but through aesthetic thought. In a series titled "Pygmalion Effect," the artist explores the popular psychological idea that greater expectations lead to better performance, questioning how an artist can influence the viewer’s perception. This mixed media on fabric work entitled "Pygmalion Effect XXIX" layers images and symbols ranging from the gestural movements of leaping acrobats to the static image of a comic book frame. The collision of cultural signifiers simultaneously soothes and overwhelms, and generates a dream world through which the viewer must navigate. Acrylic on hand-sewn fabrics.
