How Far Does the Grid Go?

My artwork probes the connection between daily life and what I perceive as the larger grid out there—a mesh that entangles all peoples, beings and things, cuts across all time, and is always in flux. Drawing from my everyday life and experiences as a Latin American immigrant, I incorporate materials from my suburban home environment in my multidisciplinary approach. I create organic forms and grids that abstract, excavate, ground and find universal truths in the quotidian. They also serve as platforms for engaging obliquely with history, science, archeology, philosophy, and magic realism. My artwork invites viewers to reach interpretations based on their own associations, experiences, and feelings. It thus brings attention to the power of our imagination to infuse the material world, particularly nature, with fluid possibilities of meaning and subjectivity.
