The experiences I had growing up in a bicultural family fuel the imagery, and emotional quality of my work. My father is an immigrant from Mexico, and my mother a white American. On a daily basis, I navigate cultural margins depending on the context of the situation. My work explores the complexities of identity with the understanding that perception is relative. Ambiguity, movement and obscurity play a role in the relationship between the figure and environment. Body language is an important signifier of the emotional temperament of the figure. Each work requires multiple layers of paint and a variety of techniques including masking, sanding, and dripping. I use both English and Spanish words interchangeably to title works which conveys the duality of my identity.
