GEORGE RODRIGUEZ

George Rodriguez addresses sensitive sociopolitical issues through his highly ornamented figurative ceramic sculptures with a tongue in cheek ease that is evident in the sense of warmth his works convey. Themes of culture and identity recur throughout his sculpture, celebrating the unique attributes of diverse cultures as well as the similarities that unite us all. Rodriguez’s ceramic sculptures eloquently communicate the emotions they embody, figures spanning a wide range of forms and personalities. Aspects of certain forms echo elements of African, Italian, and South American ceramic traditions, yet the resulting pieces are dynamically modern. 

Rodriguez holds a BFA from the University of Texas, El Paso, TX, and an MFA in ceramics from the University of Washington, Seattle, WA. He has received awards including the Museum of Northwest Art’s Luminaries’ Patti Warashina Award for Emerging Artists. Rodriguez has shown his work across the country including a solo exhibition at Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, Bainbridge Island, WA, and his sculptures can be found in collections such as the National Museum of Mexican Art, Chicago, IL. 

In December 2020, Craft in America will present an episode featuring Rodriguez's practice, which will include glimpses into his studio practice and 2020 exhibition Urban Guardians at Foster/White Gallery.
