Rodríguez imagined the moment when two people meet for the first time as two inevitable forces colliding. The animals he related to the most were rhinoceroses with their brute and intense force, mainly because they are solitary, very territorial and practically blind creatures. They were portraited in early medieval drawings wearing strange armours. The back of Primer Encuentro (First Encounter) reads:We, two irresistible forces that have met,lonesome and armoured, a little clumsy and blind,surrendering ourselves to a greater love.Rodríguez is known for his drawings, paintings, and ceramics that explore the male body, sexual desire as a creative impulse, and issues of gender and identity. Inspired by classical paintings, naïve art and porn, his playful work reveals scenes of men naturally engaged in their games and fantasies.ArtPort is a publishing house established in 2020.
