Lucía Rodríguez Pérez (1986)
Lucía Rodríguez Pérez was born and raised in Santiago, Chile. She received her B.F.A. from the Universidad Católica de Chile in 2009, and her M.F.A. from the New York Academy of Art in 2016.
Her work is encompassed primarily by paintings, but explores a range of media including works on paper, collage, sculpture, and videography. As described by her husband and artist collaborator, she is a “chromo-phile who prioritizes ambiguity”. Currently, her work explores the tension between abstraction and representation, and is informed by color as the first and last word.
Rodríguez Pérez has shown with Salon21, New York, NY: Romi Studio, Brooklyn, NY and Alto Gallery in Denver, CO. Group exhibitions include Soft Times Gallery, San Francisco, CA; RedLine, Denver, CO; Light Grey Art Lab, Minneapolis, MN; Flux Factory, New York, NY; Sala Virtual CCU, Santiago, Chile; among others. She is the recipient of a merit scholarship at the New York Academy of Art, and in 2022 was awarded a grant from the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation in New York. Her work has been featured by Greenpointers, See You Next Thursday, Project Gallery V, and the Denver Art Museum.
