Visual artist, researcher and art critic


Gonzalo Rodríguez is a visual artist, researcher and art critic born in Córdoba (1984). He began his artistic studies at the Escuela de Artes Aplicadas y Oficios Artísticos in Seville. After finishing high school, he entered the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Seville, where he graduated with a degree in painting in 2007. Thanks to a scholarship for further studies, he moved to England to study for a year at Winchester School of Art. In 2012 he returned to the Faculty of Fine Arts in Seville to complete the Master's Degree in Art, Idea and Production. Also in the last 10 years he has carried out artistic residencies thanks to grants awarded by institutions such as the Mark Rothko Museum in Latvia, UNESCO in Andorra and Malta, the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation (Canada), the BilbaoArte Foundation, the Stobart Foundation in New Mexico or the Gunnar Gunnarsson Writing Institute in Iceland


Part of my research in recent years has been based on the concept of Genius Loci, a theory that comes from Roman mythology and refers to the distinctive atmosphere of a site. According to Robert Josef Kozljanic, the Genius Loci protects the site by reminding us of the immense value of archaic history. It is this mystical/symbolic phenomenon that constantly follows and guards its objects and is responsible for natural and human development. In Faberllull Olot I intend to approach in my painting the landscape environment in the form of a visual diary. My aim is to capture the richness and harmony of the environment in small and medium-sized works.
