Wil Aballe explains his interest in conceiving of “something as ‘a gallery’ without setting it up as an antiseptic white cube. I believe art is most interesting out of the context of a gallery, within someone’s domestic space, where it is integrated within a life, as well as the other elements and objects within that space.”- blouinartinfo.com

Vivarium Gallery Sea Creatures

On the warm summer evening of Friday, August 1st 2008, a small group gathered outside a newly founded window front gallery on Yew Street and gazed inside. Filling the space were two enormous paintings of imagined sea creatures, the first and second panels from Christopher's ongoing sea creature series. Almost three years later, the Vivarium Gallery presents the next two 80" X 96" panels, on display April 30th through May 14th 2011.


The third and fourth panels began as a ballpoint pen sketch, produced during the summer of 2008 & 2009 on Wreck Beach. The beauty of this west coast seascape, the meditative sound of the rolling waves, the salty smell and taste of the ocean, the deceptively tropical July & August and the unique culture that inhabits this beach, provides a wealth of inspiration. Over the cooler, rainy months these drawings are scanned into the computer, composed within Photoshop, translated onto canvas using pencil, then converted into colour with acrylic paint.

Please join us at the VIVARIUM GALLERY for a reception party for Christopher Rodrigues, Saturday, October 10th from 6-9. On display until November 9th are the artist proofs of Still Life 01 & Still Life 04 as well as a Personal Altar. The digital Cibachrome prints, sourcing still life flower paintings from the Dutch Golden Age, were first publicly exhibited in March 2009 at the SCOPE Art Fair in New York. Christopher's Personal Altar aims to gain a deeper understanding of the old tradition of Still Life in Contemporary Art, through the practice of altar making.  Altar making is a common tradition that bridges all religions.  Beyond organized religion, personal Altars can be found in many house-holds around the world. This summer the Vancouver audience was given the opportunity to learn about and examine the Dutch Golden Age of painting, in a beautiful curated exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery.  This exhibition extended many peoples understanding of the visual language of Still Life, a language that is necessary to interpret Christopher's work.

INDEFINITELY PENDING
RARE Gallery Still Land - Ryan Brennan & Christopher Rodrigues

521 W. 26th Street, New York

Christopher uses the computer and Photoshop as his artistic mediums in three ongoing series of works -- Planets, Islands, Still Lifes -- that examine the relationship between Nature and Technology as well as photography and painting. Employing techniques that resemble collage and painting, he absents the camera from the process of creating his photographs. The results, printed as Cibachromes and face-mounted to Plexiglas, are both hyper-real and fantastical, connecting to traditional notions of the still life and landscape while looking forward to a digitally enhanced universe. Each of the three series is produced in an edition of seven. Chris will participate in his second exhibition at RARE this fall.

2130 Yew Street, Vancouver

Please join us for the opening of the VIVARIUM GALLERY; a new gallery in the affluent neighborhood of Kitsilano, Vancouver, founded by Jamie Griffiths and Christopher Rodrigues .A diptych, by Christopher Rodrigues, will be the first work to show at the VIVARIUM GALLERY. The two 80" X 96" paintings were worked up from ball-point pen sketches produced on Wreck Beach during the summer of 2007; translated to paint over the autumn, winter and spring. The work considers the element of water in relation to the human body and mind; metaphorically equating the creation process and deep-sea-fishing. The diptych exhibited at the Vivarium Gallery through August, depict four chimera from the sea; each couple witnessing the conception of their child. The narrative pauses for a moment, while these creatures embrace, as their paths cross under the sea.

The Vault A Story of Creation

225 E Houston, New York

Christopher Rodrigues presents a slide show depicting a story of creation. A series of images have been chosen to represent a two years program of work, observing how nature and technology relate. The video begins as a series of flowers and creatures that become composed into gardens and floating islands. The islands become compressed together and flooded to become a small, walkable planet. The images then move through a planet phase, making a break from the previous images. The final two images move from a sun to a star and then whites out.

Curated by David Hunt

Jay Batlle, Ben Beaudoin, Jesse Bercowetz & Matt Bua, Ben Blatt, Suntek Chung, Gina Dawson, Adam Helms, Haavard Homstvedt, Elizabeth Huey, Matthew Day Jackson, Christopher Rodrigues"

MOMENT OF CLARITY", 2004, DVD SERIES OF 5 + 2AP
Dance: Ayelen Liberona
Cello: Rubin Koeheli
Perform: Fishing for Jade Blue Embers    

These two powerful artists set up a camera on a rock in Upper New York State and filmed themselves performing. There is a feeling of cermony as the piece builds. This is the first in a series of performance collaborations between Ayelen & Rubin. Christopher digitally super-imposed an image of a hand-laser playing with feedback from a TV screen looped with a camera filming itself. He used many layers of varying transparency, approaching video like he painted in glazes. This digital video led his artistic practice towards the long-term exploration of how technology and nature relate. Developing new, creative ways to use simple, existing, technology. This video contrasts the mechanical image he created, with the video of a natural, artistic human ritual.

Bird - Stolen by FEDEX over the atlantic ocean

Bird, 1997
Acrylic on Canvas
5' X 3'

I painted this piece in 1997. The final image seems to morph from a dove to a parrot, a porpoise to a whale. It was painted upside down as a vortex or black hole sucking in light. Once this painting was completed I turned it upside down to reveal the finished image.
I last saw this painting on the night of May 5th 2004 while I unstretched and rolled it up. The next morning I took the painting, packed in a black tube with dented silver caps and used Fed Ex to mail it to a collector in London England.
The following 3-5 business days I enthusiastically followed it's journey across the Atlantic, with the use of my tracking number. After a failed first attempt, no further efforts were taken to deliver my work. After two weeks I contacted the recipient to see if she could get the painting moving again on her end. The tracking number is 844554190304.
I called the Fed Ex office and the agent told me the package arrived in England opened with the painting removed. Their tracing process provided no leads to the thief and they concluded if they find the painting they will contact me. They never contacted me again.
If anyone has any information about the location of this painting I would love to know where it has ended up. I wrote an extended letter this website URL on the back of the painting, so there is a great chance that the thief is watching me.
