CINQ GALLERY PRESENTS THE FINE LINE OPENING RECEPTION
Cinq Gallery in the Dallas Design District presents Rodolfo Choperena’s new solo show, The Fine Line.
Choperena’s work is best described as abstracted photography: representational yet complicated by the obscuring and absenting of the subject. By inducing movement and manually manipulating subjects and light sources, Choperena provokes a figurative tableau into abstraction. Every shot, every video, is the evidence of a performance. The acts of montage and manipulation are performed in camera, and movement is his primary performative act. By maneuvering the camera’s placement, aperture and exposure settings in relation to color fields, landscapes, light sources, precipitation and seascapes, the artist’s work pushes the boundaries of perception, creating organic, lyrical free forms. The resultant images are the reinterpretation of the original subject. Striations shift in varying intervals and rhythms, alternately compressing and expanding positive and negative space. However obscured, each composition retains a firm representational vantage point—host to personal objects and scenario manipulations. Each image is a direct reflection of his ever-changing environment.
