Alina Rodriguez-Rojo is a Cuban born, Miami based interdisciplinary textile artist and art educator who works with a wide range of repurposed materials. Alina’s works are sewn together from used clothing, human hair, plastics, and scraps of memorabilia, all imbedded in translucent backgrounds that let the light in. Alina’s work is contemplative and introspective at the same time. Her delicate sculptural pieces are a balance between chance in art making, experimentation, and alchemic thoughts of transformation. Her work is influenced by artists such as Eva Hesse and Ansel Kiefer who chose to work with transient materials and the science of alchemy.  “Art has the power to perpetuate time and space and defy the transitory tastes of today’s culture.”
