Francis Estrada
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Bedford-Stuyvesant



ARTIST STATEMENT: In my work, I interrogate how visual cues found in historical photographs, mass media, political propaganda, and personal archives influence or inflect social or cultural narratives. By playing with the presentation of allusive (often figural) imagery, I create a space that is uncannily recognizable yet opaque. As figuration is understood to derive meaning from its varying distances from naturally occurring forms, or reality, it holds special meaning in constructing personal and social histories. My objective is to play with the nature of that correspondence.
