Ecuadorian born, New York based artist. Solo exhibitions include Smack Mellon, BRIC, Emerson Gallery Berlin, Praxis and Kenise Barnes Fine Art. She received an MFA from Parsons, MA from Hunter College and BA from Queens College.
A multimedia artist working in painting, sculpture and installation layering materials, identities and histories. She addresses ideas of culture interaction and interpretation, and commonalities humans share in our relationship to nature.
Addressing the process of cultural encounter and entanglement, mixed media and encaustic are used to create cross-cultural narratives by juxtaposing appropriated images from vintage books. Each painting contains 25 layers of encaustic, metaphorically layering cultures, identity and places.
