    The objects that Cristina Lei Rodriguez creates take many forms, but all are made from common materials that are given a new intangible life. Her work is both organic and abstract, yet pristinely finished, echoing a tension between the natural and the artificial. An important figure in Miami’s art scene, Rodriguez creates sculptures that channel the character of the city as she experiences it, stating: “Nature here can be so aggressive and so strong, the natural environment here is really alive, but it’s also really about the city being constructed and so much of it is an illusion.”
