Rosaura Rodríguez is an artist and educator, working on illustration, comics and objects in which handcrafted, artisanal traditions coincide with contemporary practices. Her work intends to reveal both the crudeness of daily life and the idyllic face of nature. She is currently researching tropical and Puerto Rican sources of color in nature, by creating natural watercolors, inks and dyes and connecting this with our history and context.
In situ landscape of a small creek and waterfall at the farm I live at, made using handmade Jagua ink (Genipa americana) for the water. "Jolla" is a coloquial term used in the central mountainous region of PR, for small river or creek. Painted along my 12 year neighbor on an expedition around the farm. This piece is framed.
