Rodrigo Garcia Dutra

MA work

My artistic research practice traces back moments in time that influenced the aesthetics of the world how we perceive it today. I build a collection of facts, found objects, gifts and places where I travelled. I then re-work these through drawing, painting, bronze casting, charcoal tracings, video editing and arrangement/re-arrangement of them in the space to re-evaluate these moments or situations, shedding a new light on them.
