Jessica Alazraki
Brooklyn , NY

Media:Painting;


ARTIST STATEMENT: As a Mexican woman living in New York, I feel it is my responsibility to open up a dialogue about immigrants. My work intends to respond to the political climate surrounding Latinx immigrants– one full of controversy. During the pandemic, the Hispanic communities were some of the most affected. My paintings have a positive and colorful vibe; they intend to be a celebration of Latinx life in the US and aim to highlight family values. The narrative shows typical situations of ordinary people in which everyone can recognize that moment as their own. Bright colors and decorative patterns are very characteristic of my works; my pictures are very painterly and have an intense brushwork that provides unique character and highlights emotion.

Solo Exhibition

Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning (JCAL) is pleased to present Portraits of Latino Immigrants , an exhibition of paintings by Jessica Alazraki. Opening the week of the presidential election, the exhibition offers glimpses into the everyday lives of Latinx families in the US, with its combination of bright patterns and colors and muted expressions; it is a reminder of a common humanity that we share even in politically heated and divisive times.
The artist is a recipient of the 2020 Queens Art Fund New Work Grant, awarded by the Queens Council on the Arts.
