About Rocky Pardo

My works are miniature wearable homages to my split roots in both the Midwest and Spain. Art became the universal language that bridged the two cultures and the sky was the vessel that brought me from one to the other. Through exploring my childhood imagination and belonging in two worlds, I developed my own mythology of how land and sky existed. These ideas have become the recurring imagery of my work, making each piece its own imagined skyscape. I use precious metal because art as jewelry can be worn as an extension of my body allowing for easy transport.
