Rodriguez Calero: Urban Martyrs and Latter Day Santos
Our Lady (Nuestra Senora), 2013
Urban Martyrs and Latter Day Santos is a wonderful retrospective of Calero's art.
Rodriguez Calero at El Museo del Barrio, NYC
Calero's work is powerful, 
and acts like a moonbeam piercing darkness.
Our Lady of Pop (Nuestra Senora del Pop), 2013 
She masterfully combines urban street culture with Catholic iconography and Medieval religious paintings to give us a luminous vision that evokes the spiritual. 

Jesus y Magdalena, 2000
Acrollage painting
Acrollage is Calero's original mixed media technique that combines intricate layers of acrylic mediums/paints with various washi papers and images.

Rodriguez Calero's exhibit will be on view until 19 December.

Walking through Clouds

I have been taking morning walks in tranquil Maryland meadows.  
There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
