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.
