Rodriguez & Ledvina: Ecstatically Exuding Exuberance
February 5 through March 5, 2010
1836 Richmond Avenue, Houston, TX 77098
Come laugh it off at Rudolph Projects Artscan Gallery with a show by two art jokesters- Matthew Rodriguez and Cody Ledvina. Sarcasm and absurdities abound in playful attempt to comment on and mask the weight of the world. Rodriguez’s found object collages and mixed media compositions are knowingly simplistic, hilarious and cartoonish. Cody Ledvina, co-owner of the increasingly infamous The Joanna Gallery, offers drawings, paintings, sculptures and video works which offer a lopsided take on 19th century strum and drung combined with a throughly contemporary absurdity.
