Rodrigo Lara is an artist from Mexico. His upbringing included many cultural influences from the rich Mexican civilization.

“I am currently most interested in the creative process of my sculptural work.  The joy I experience when there is contact between my hands and my materials gives me a feeling that permeates my emotions.  In my studio practice, I feel a similarity between playing an instrument and the execution of the artwork.  I find the rhythm and cadence of the materials when I’m working, when I’m shaping or implementing. The sounds that occur in developing the sculpture, rhythm and hand movements are the ideal way for me to be in the world to experience life. The body actions are sometimes sudden and rapid, sometimes subtle and slow. This creative process powers my building and development of the work. Different materials such as clay, oil, bronze, acrylic, resins, wood, among others, give me chance to experience sensations that gives me the sculpture process, and allow me to develop and create my ideas: life, death, time, etc. through art,” explains the artist.
