Carmen Lizardo
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work addresses issues of citizenship, immigration and identity and frames issues of race from an Afro-Caribbean viewpoint. I seek to portray intercultural challenges, regionalism, and displacement, and to understand the relevance and consequence of melding and hybridizing in the American culture. In El Negro detras de la Oreja I use hair as a metaphor to explore racial identity in the Latino culture. El Negro detras de la Oreja is very familiar saying in the Dominican population, meaning that regardless of how white one may look, we will always have our blackness hidden behind our ears. It also means that we are always looking for the most efficient way to hide our African heritage. My “Negritude” came from my hair.
