Honored to be part of another exhibit by the Museo para la Identidad Nacional de Honduras, now as part of the Maleta MIN traveling exhibits at Casa Quinchon in Tegucigalpa.

Statement


Statement
My collage series was started a couple of years ago when I began to understand that gender is a cultural construct to which we are conditioned during childhood. The connection of this performative gender assignment has always been linked to politics and the economy.
 
In my current work, I question identity and highlight the artificiality of gender assignments as a concept. I am creating a new narrative with the appropriation of images in the manner of metaphor, where human beings can and must play different roles to disarticulate those that they have built upon them, normalized and imposed by the culture at large. The work questions gender labels, evidencing the conflict between sexuality and gender. This idea is expressed in the work by different textures, motion and color, asking the viewer to rebuild the painting as a way to scrape into their unthinkable memories, forcing some breaking points where something new and unexpected begins as new meaning in the viewers’ mind…
