My paintings explore the hybridity of Western and Latin American identity. For me, understanding hybrid identity, and its coexistence within historical context, does not assume a position in words, but in shape. Embedded in the compositions is Latin American culture: its intricate folk arts, tropical flora, and warm hues; while graffiti tags, bold mark-making, and images of conquest interrupt this metaphorical skin. Patterns, both traditional and commercial, are fragmented and pieced together. Colors infused with Latin flavor are diluted by a ubiquitous white. Organic, blooming forms are contrasted by flat or rigid fields.

“ todavía” uses the tools of paint and brush to consider the colonization of Latin American, and its continual role as “colony” to Western society.
