Rodney Artiles's current works include oil or acrylic mediums,depending upon the result he is looking for in the artwork. From landscape, color field or surrealistic images, he strives to create deeply personal and internal dialogues within them. Earlier works resemble nothing more than color field paintings, and for those he focused on the interaction of the colors and color harmonies to achieve movement and depth without symbolism or narrative. At other times, he is creating works that are more akin to Abstract Expressionism and Surrealism, and the images that were of somewhat tortuous or nocturnal landscapes and mythological pieces, have transformed into abstracted Californian landscapes and introspective dialogs.
Rodney Artiles is a California artist that for the last 10 years has persistently developed a unique series of paintings, which focus on imagery discovered within abstraction.
