Best emerging visual artist

Lucha Rodriguez

Staff Pick

LUCHA RODRIGUEZ's examination of the body as a web of thoughts and organs manifests itself in the ethereal delicacy of her voluminous hand-cut paper installations and the sinuous tangles and gelatinous surrealism of her "Creaturettes." She's also got a penchant for the color pink — her artful autopsies bleed it. The Venezuela-born artist, who has a BFA in graphic design from the Art Institute of Atlanta, and an MFA in printmaking from the Savannah College of Art & Design, wowed this year in Encore Series at the ACA Gallery of SCAD and in Spruill Gallery's LatinGA. Last May, Rodriguez was awarded the Forward Arts Foundation's 2010-11 Emerging Artist Award, which includes a $10,000 grant and a solo show at the Swan Coach House Gallery. We can't wait to see what she comes up with next. www.love-lucha-now.org
