Although most noted for his technical capabilities with prints and such, Manuel Rodriguez Sr. has crafted numerous masterful works with oil on canvas. Just as in his prints, Rodriguez’s penchant for color shines through.
Bearing a distinctive quality, his brand of pointillism harks of youthful memories and familiar things—a nostalgic play of ideas, more so a reminiscent look back. Rife with the hallmarks of vivid artistic expression, Rodriguez’s expressive, pointillist style boasts of an intelligible complexity that speaks in volumes.
