Carlos Enrique Rodríguez, is currently working between San Juan Puerto Rico and Brooklyn NY. He was born and raised in the US territory of Puerto Rico where he transferred from a degree in economics to art. Through the combined use of painting, photography, found objects and archival material, the work often takes the form of a vast panorama that allows him to explore forms of abstraction within subjects such as memory, familiarity, longing and the mapping of territories.
Carlos has a combined BFA from the School of Fine Arts of Puerto Rico and The School of the Museum of Fine Art in Boston, as well as an MFA from Brooklyn College in New York. He has been awarded the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture Residency as well as the Mass Moca studio residency. He has produced several curatorial projects and his work has been shown in venues such as the Queens Museum, Athens Institute of Contemporary Art, The Drawing Center in Boston, The Hunterdon Art Museum in New Jersey, and galleries in New York, Latin America, and Europe.
