Leaning against the walls of a studio on Lone Star Boulevard, the oversize paintings that will make up next weekend’s opening exhibit of San Antonio artist AJ Rodriguez’s most recent work invite interpretation. What you see in his bold use of color, smooth textures, and the abstract figures that seem to be in motion on the canvas will be exactly right, every single time.
The same could be said of the artist himself.
“What is most pleasing to me through this venture is seeing what others see in this work,” Rodriguez said. “When you see another’s viewpoint, the impressions they have, the visuals they get, I’m always amazed. And if you see it, that’s great. That’s what I’m trying to inspire in others – developing their own creative lens.”
