Adrian Viajero Roman
Brooklyn, NY
Neighborhood: Sunset Park



ARTIST STATEMENT: My work is informed by issues of race, migration and identity while exploring both the personal and historical memory of the two disparate worlds that I inhabit: the tropical landscape of Puerto Rico and the overpopulated cityscape of New York.  My practice combines drawing, painting and sculpture within immersive installation environments composed of objects collected from different communities, from salvaged wood and window frames to historic artifacts and vintage photographs. The resulting environments can fill an entire wall or an entire room, and often incorporate sound and aromatics that draw upon the history and memory embedded in the objects. I’m interested in the continuity of time, and in how these interventions may bring these living histories forward to the present.
