Sam Rodriguez – “Type Faces” @ 886 Geary

886 Geary Gallery is pleased to present “Type Faces”, a solo exhibition by Sam Rodriguez. The opening reception will be Saturday, August 15th, from 7-11 pm, the exhibition is free and open to the public for viewing through September 5th, 2015.

According to Rodriguez “Type Faces came from my interest in typography and portraiture. As the series has developed, I have explored patterns between language and identity in a social, historic, and cultural sense. Typefaces, and typecasts are tools for identifying. We use them to communicate and make sense or sometimes distort our perceived realities. In today’s globalized social environment, so much of our perceived notions have become hybridized, and vague. In that regard, these works are an observation of identity as cultural landscape paintings and drawings. They are small samples and remixes of expression in an ever-shrinking world.”
