Lisyanet Rodríguez (b. Sancti Spíritus, Cuba, 1987) graduated from the Higher Institute of Art (ISA) in Havana, 2013. She currently lives and works in the United States. Lisyanet’s drawings start from the contemplative imitation of reality to reflect non-traditional notions of beauty, to explore the passing time, and to examine the complexity and fragility of nature. Elements and concepts such as: the body, the pain, the trauma in their relationship to physical and psychological confrontation, are instrumental in her work. Psychological and dramatic themes highlight the widening breach between the ideal life and the real. Recent works deal with the disparity, multiples, the life cycle, and the search for meaning.
