Sam Rodriguez continues his ongoing series of work involving questions and ideas about identity in style and culture. This time the work involves more “fractioning” as Rodriguez calls it. His painted dissections of the human face are intended to further emphasize and explore the idea of people as walking “melting pots”. Although the obvious subject to read in the work is ethnicity, he wishes to speak to the broader topic of visual identity, which may include one’s own style or perception. The work playfully juxtaposes several visual cues that we use in order to process information about people we see. Rodriguez views these portraits as somewhat anthropological in that they are studies of people’s visual mix.
