The Second Story Gallery is pleased to announce our next exhibition, SOLAR, a two-person show of works by Kathy Rodriguez and Jefferey Rinehart. Exploring vision, light and distortion, their pieces express the underlying mysteries beneath ordinary surfaces, everyday objects and familiar landscapes. Rodriguez’s lusciously glazed oil on canvas/muslin paintings morph conventional landscapes into illuminated dreamscapes, evoking artists such as Odilon Redon and Marsden Hartley. The brushwork is corporeal, the subjects are totemic. In a hallucinogenic association, a sun with solar flares shapeshifts into a bursting pomegranate in Staring at the Sun: Solar Flares, 2022. Rodriguez will exhibit seven paintings in total.

Rinehart’s works employ a range of approaches including digitally printed pieces and other media to create elements of transparency and distortion. Rinehart copper etching plates, which are traditionally used the vehicle for printmaking, are given permission as a final surface, oxidized to create topographical facades of esoteric interiority. Eleven of Rinehart’s copper plates, photographs, and sculptures will be on view.

 

Kathy Rodriguez and Jeffrey Rinehart have exhibited extensively at local and national levels. Both artists teach in the Fine Arts Department at the University of New Orleans and have occupied gallery director roles in addition to being active members of our regional arts community.
