Arturo Rodríguez: Arrivals and Departures 

Arturo Rodríguez, Departures XXI, 2009, oil on canvas 

Arturo Rodríguez: Arrivals and Departures is a series of paintings capturing the poetics of airports.   Beautifully and sensitively painted, these works offer us opportunities to reflect on the experience of travel, one that can, as in all transitions, elicit the full range of emotional responses.   There is a strong feeling of melancholy and expectation in these paintings, a recognition that we are ultimately alone in the world, but, at the same time, we can also recognize that there is a beauty and urgency to the depiction of emptiness we see here - like a mirror showing us more of ourselves.
