Kelsey Rodriguez

United States of America


My name is Kelsey Rodriguez and I'm a young, emerging abstract artist living in Saint Paul, Minnesota. I’m developing my career as an artist while pursuing an undergraduate degree in Political Science from Macalester College.

I first began painting in this style in May of 2018. My work is currently on display at Sister’s Sludge (a local cafe in Minneapolis) as well as Austin Area Arts Center, a juried sales gallery. I also have a show at Claddagh Coffee Cafe scheduled for October and November.

My subject matter is outer space, typically abstract conceptualizations of extrasolar planets, moons, and nebulas. I use traditional materials, acrylic, and wood, in unexpected and nontraditional means to capture movement and detail. My process is chaotic and unsure, I never quite know how a painting will turn out until it is dry.

I want to convey the same sense of wonder and amazement, that thirst for discovery, of wanting, needing to see more, that I felt when I first became transfixed by the stars.
