A word that describes a document that has the marks of previous writings, Palimpsest is a testimony featuring different layers where previous marks remain and that can be seen beneath the surface, is used by Alicia Rodriguez to define this body of work. This exhibition features large-format mixed media paintings - monochromatic at first look- that create a metaphoric connection between the tragic events taking place in her native country of Venezuela and Dante’s Inferno. Through detailed observation, the viewer discovers the different layers with multiple materials applied to each of the surfaces exhibited, each layer and each texture reflecting on the artist’s experiences as she faced political turmoil in her lifetime. Each painting is approached as a manuscript that has told many stories, on the same page.
