Through the use of video, photography, archives, archeology, and text, I analyze the instability of meaning, the construction of visual narratives as locations of self formation as well as the implications of such narratives into perceptions of identity.
I’m absorbed by the powerful stories of women, portrayed through artistic collaboration, that subverts the idea of the artist as the main producer by sharing control over the photographic representation within our own creative entities.
I use photography, photographic collage and installation to create works that explore the themes of cultural and queer identity, memory, and displacement and their direct relationship to the Latinx narrative in America.
I explore the complex relationships between archive, historical memory and black recollection, through a queer lens.
