Mexican - American
b. 1987, on the Border
I stand between two countries, crossing back and forth amongst nations, existing somewhere in-between, incessantly prying open the gap between evidence and truth, image and reality, one perspective or context and another. My work offers viewers a set of questions that require them to peel back, enter into, decode, expose or perceive another reality, another way of seeing. My work is formally tight, I deliberate each action thoroughly, allowing room for chance and ambiguity, understanding my process as gesture and performance, as a form of processing and responding to contemporaneity.
