Nepantla Gallery, owned and operated by artist Isis Rodriquez, is one of a kind gallerty, located in the Independencia neighborhood of San Miguel de Allende, about a 20-minute walk from the Centro. Isis is a gifted teacher and artist. I attended her latest show, which is inspired by her exploration of "modern love," through her use of tech platforms such as Tinder, and online dating. Her experiences as a 55-year old woman, led her to create new male and female archetypes, for which she is well known. My two favorite pieces in her new show were "Mexican Viagra" and "Nurse Purse" both visually potent examples of Isis' work. The still life of flowers from this series was also visually arresting. If you are in San Miguel and want to experience a highly personal art, visit Isis' gallery. She is very friendly and welcoming.

The current exhibit, CRUSH, presents a brave approach to an innovative perspective and understanding on the experience of dating in a world where traditional binary male-female labels are changing dramatically. Acceptance of any sexual identity that doesn’t fit into the norms of society is finally becoming part of a conversation, for which Isis's work creates a compelling and inspirational platform, one that comes from her own experience, open-mindedness, and willingness to put herself out there with bravery and authenticity. And…I’ve been single and “NOT ready to mingle” for a while but I went to the party and left with an amazing new CRUSH….who I’ve been dating ever since….who knew?

This was my first life drawing class in 30+ years, and I went with a little trepidation. I rang the doorbell, and a lovely lilting voice asked if this is Linda! And that was the beginning of the magic of Isis. She brings a huge amount of knowledge and the ability to explain herself to each person in the group. And her personality and excitement flows from her into me. I left each class exhausted, but excited for my progress, and eagerly awaiting the next lesson. And when the drawing is finally done, I can’t believe that I created it. That is the magic of Isis.

Isis Rodriguez creates archetypal characters and places them in familiar conflicts and controversial themes of identity, gender and gender relations, cultural bias, and social pressure. She chose to dedicate her artistic talent and knowledge of Great Masters' oil painting processes to the presentation, interpretation, and hopefully the resolution of a personal-social disagreement with conformity. In this sense, her art has a truly catharctic effect on the viewer. By placing the narrative and characters in a mythological/fantastic background has the effect of creating an epic of present day human condition. Definitely worth your time spending it admiring her oil paintings and speaking with Isis.

Within one month in her class, Maestra Isis Rodriguez not only brought me, as a life-long recreational artist, to the next creative level in my drawing ability as we had planned, but she exceeded my expectations! With her tips, tricks and personally relevant demonstrations, my subject matter is now more accurately drawn, powerfully depicted, lushly coloured and meaningfully integrated within the page. What I found truly exceptional, was her ability to zone in on meeting the artistic needs of each student, whether a beginner in class or someone, as myself, seeking reinvigoration and further inspiration. Maestra Isis is a superb instructor, with a dynamic personality whose amazing insights and exceptional teaching skills made a significant difference in my work!
