Memory in art,
Culture in art,
DescriptionI am interested in exploring this space of memory through the process of painting and installation. My memory of growing up with the Mexican culture is the lens I use to approach my body of work. I am seeking to create an experiential space through the artwork that has the potential to visually transcend language, culture, and religion. The cultural and religious elements from private and public memorials, shrines, and altars are incorporated into the work. I fuse my interests in the visual exploration with the subjective space of memory, culture and influences from contemporary art. Also, I have used the persuasion of contemporary artists such as Jacqueline Humphries, Charline Von Heyl, Beatriz Milhazes, and Pepon Osorio as an underlying inspiration for much of my work.
