Elisa M Velazquez
Ridgewood, NY
Neighborhood: Bushwick

Genre:Surreal; Symbolic;


ARTIST STATEMENT: I create soft textile sculptures, installations and mixed media pieces that both honors and subverts traditional woman’s work. The pieces are a reflection on my bicultural Latina identity and what that mean in today’s society. I explore the universal themes of love, lust, and sexuality. The duality of these themes and their cultural constructs are central to my work. I utilize materials that may be interpreted as toy-like and playful while imbuing a sense of seriousness and drama.
