Act Natural: Retrospective Of Work 2003-2018 by Cristina Lei Rodriguez


A visit to the studio of artist Cristina Lei Rodriguez is like being transported into a kaleidoscopic daydream. Bohemian chandeliers dangle off the trees and vivid colors drip from every corner. Her work echoes a tension between the natural and the artificial and creates layered magical worlds that unfold slowly.

Act Natural: Retrospective of Work 2003 - 2018 (Tra Publishing, May 2018), chronicles the artist’s works, intertwined with essays by the artist and writer, Shane Aslan Selzer; José Carlos Diaz, Chief Curator of Art of The Andy Warhol Museum; and Christian Larsen, Associate Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Her brilliant oeuvre, years worth of exhibitions, tells the story of her inspiration and artistic process — creating a retrospective collection of her work.

The book’s exuberance adds gravity to the ethereal themes seen throughout her work — through materials, bold colors, typography, layout and layering of pages, the design of the book reflects the spirit of Cristina Lei Rodriguez’s work.

Each edition of the book is a collector’s art piece, creating an experience which is tactile as it is visual. The Collector’s Edition is limited to 50 sculptures, each one designed to elegantly encase her book.
