Gamaliel Rodríguez deftly works on paper through a combination of felt and ballpoint pens to produce a series of aerial views of artificial industrial, military, and civilian structures imagined in Puerto Rico and US territories. Visual memories are manipulated into fictional drawings. The photorealist scenes initiate a unique social experiment, interacting with viewers’ personal memories and sense of place. He obtained his Master Degree in Visual Arts at the Kent Institute of Art and Design in Kent 2005 and among his numerous residencies is Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2011.
