Traditional and Contemporary Collide- Jose Rodriguez!

"Ready Darkness" by Jose Rodriguez. All rights reserved.

Jose Rodriguez takes the stylings of traditional female portraits of a bygone era, an era we prize so dearly in the art community, and gives them a modern day makeover. Does he actually take traditional works and remake them? I don’t think so. It’s more the feeling I get when I view his work. Old but modern. Traditional but new. These are hopelessly overused terms, I know. Yet they seem appropriate and accurate for Rodrigez’s work.

The truth is, I know (and can find) very little about Rodrigez. I know he’s a Seattle artist. I know he’s shown work at Bherd Studios. And lastly, I know he’s on deviant art as pencil206. That’s it. Sometimes that’s just how it goes.

But that doesn’t change how I feel about his work. The more I looked at it, the more I liked it. So, Give Us Art! readers…what do you think about his work? Not only the images I’ve posted here, but also his work on his deviant site? I look forward to hearing your opinions.
