Rodrigo Lara has quite the portfolio for his age. He has done a number of sculpture series, all with the same recurring theme of investigating the human psyche. In his gas mask series, he uses the gas mask as an iconic representation for suffocation.
As for the rest of his series and other independent projects, Lara portrays the human figure playing between emotion and psychology. The way that Lara explores the fear and love in the body to me is both dark and enjoyable. In Lara’s human-mosquito series, he uses mosquito forms to represent aggression in people who exercise their power over others, inevitably affecting any innocent people nearby.
