Artist: Roderick Hidalgo, Title: Reflections

  • My works are a composition of visual art and science; bringing the two together to re-create specific natural elements of the environments that surround us in our daily lives. My work is about a deeper understanding of and connection with nature, and a focus on mindful intentionalism, which enables me to notice small, seemingly insignificant details and incorporate them into my work. I combine organic compounds, powdered pigments, beeswax, and liquid resin, a unique process that has allowed me to create art that evokes life in all forms, down to pieces that even have a cellular aesthetic. The marrying of these mediums is the beauty: the pieces themselves are like little habitats, almost as if the canvas becomes a living entity.
