La Mano Press
Review by Tom Good
"[ . . . ] the linoleum plate is a black space that is full of possibilities. When I cut into it I am creating; hence, every space I do not cut into is a space that holds the potential for me to do more. Instead of throwing away these possibilities, I go on carving figures that I integrate into a larger composition." - Artemio Rodriguez
As this quote indicates, Artemio Rodriguez often fills his prints with detail, allowing thin lines and smaller figures to support the main composition. The fine lines swirling through space make many of his prints seem to overflow with energy, even when the subject remains static. Unlike the "speed lines" seen in manga, these do not suggest motion, but rather a hypnotic tranquility.
Many of his subjects have religious themes, and Adam and Eve make multiple appearances. In one case they wear modern briefs instead of fig leaves, and Adam sports urban-looking tattoos. Angels, devils, Death, and unusual creatures also inhabit the prints, giving the book an otherworldly quality. [more]
