Bite The Tongue at Kerlin Gallery
Kerlin Gallery is delighted to bring the Texan heat to Dublin, announcing its first solo exhibition with the San Antonio-based artist Daniel Rios Rodriguez, 'Bite the Tongue'.
Following on from his inclusion in a group exhibition at Kerlin Gallery in 2017, Rios Rodriguez returns to the gallery to present an exhibition of new paintings from 27 August – 29 September. The opening is scheduled for the 6th of September.
Daniel Rios Rodriguez makes intimate and exuberant semi-figurative paintings on wooden panels. His subject matter is rooted in the natural world, drawing upon traditions of landscape, folk painting and momento mori to blend images of plants, animals, suns, moons and mountains with powerful and fantastical kaleidoscopic visions.
Rios Rodriguez earned an MFA from Yale School of Art in 2007. Current and forthcoming exhibitions include Right Here, Right Now: San Antonio, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (28 April – 5 August 2018); It was literally the wreck of jewels and the crash of gems, a two-person exhibition with Kate Newby, Nicelle Beauchene, New York (28 June – 17 August 2018) and a solo show at San Antonio Museum of Art, Texas (2019).
You can enjoy the South American pulse in Kerlin's Gallery, Anne's Lane, Dublin 2, Monday to Friday from 10 am to 5.45 pm or Saturday from 11 am to 4.30 pm.
