Don Rodrigues, Parkland, FLA Member Since February 2019 Artist Statement My work, which I describe as Geometric Abstraction, reflects my modern, urban experience. I went to Art schools in NYC and was impressed early on by the Responsive Eye exhibit at MOMA in 1965. I have studied form and pattern for decades. I produce works that present themes based on perception. That is, I paint, print and photograph optical, hard-edge, texturized subject matter. Op, Perceptual, Pattern-painting, Neo-Geo…… these are the schools of style that I belong to.
My creations have parallels everywhere. I hope that viewers will feel the connection that Geometric Abstraction has with music, science, industry, nature.
