Lucha Rodriguez continues to develop her collection of Knife Drawings, artworks made by watercolor and razor sharp cuts on the surface of the paper. Rodriguez’s Knife drawings challenge the viewer to take a second look at something that from a far seems simple and trivial but on a closer look, surprises them with intimate detail and complexity. These knife drawings are meant to represent the union between precision and intuition; organic and geometric; simplicity and complexity. It encourages them to know the work not by their first impressions but by taking a long hard look at what’s really beneath the surface.
