Maia Cruz Palileo
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Sunset Park



ARTIST STATEMENT: As a first generation Filipino-American, I am interested in how outward appearances such as house décor, cars, bric a brac, and brand name ownership can represent assimilation into American culture while Filipino cultural signifiers such as language, food, and moral values remain unseen. Based on remembered experiences and photographs from the 1970s and 80s, my sculptures, drawings, animations, and installations focus on family life and domestic settings through the lens of memory and loss. Central to my work are ideas of recollection, familiarity, and yearning to belong.
