Belén Rodríguez

Belén Rodríguez (b. 1981, Valladolid, Spain) is a sculptor at the intersection of the natural and manmade world, harnessing and describing the elegance of organic phenomena while remaining highly attuned to formalism and display. Represented by Josh Lilley since 2009, her work has been part of exhibitions in institutions such as CA2M, Tabacalera, Matadero and La Casa Encendida, Madrid; Can Felipa, Barcelona; Das Weisse Haus, Vienna; Yokohama Creative Center; and the Concert Gebouw, Bruges.

Belén Rodríguez lives and works in Madrid.
