Cristina Lei Rodriguez’s sculptural forms are abstract objects that echo the coupled narratives of decadence and ruin. Although the natural processes of growth and decay have been the operative thematic in all of her work, lately the artist has veered away from nature and towards cultural constructions of uncertainty and instability. In her latest pieces, the materials are shaped with critical attention to the extensive gluttony and unapologetic glamour that accompany contemporary capitalism: the consolidated accumulations of wealth, the global economic recession, the persistent fluctuation of value, and the threats of total systemic collapse.
