Lucha Rodríguez (b. 1990) is a Venezuelan-Panamanian artist based in Atlanta, Georgia. Lucha’s knife-cut drawings delicately incise precise patterns and geometric forms into watercolored paper. Light and shadow are key elements of the finished artwork, as the interplay of these two forces challenges the viewer’s perception of dimensionality through the artist's illusionistic paper manipulations. Lucha uses her work as a transitional tool to open the viewer to new experiences and levels of bodily and mental awareness and give form and structure to ethereal relationships between us and our environment.
