Statement

My body of work studies personal identity in four major mediums: printmaking, photography, sculpture, and writing. I use these mediums to marry digital image processing with traditional printing techniques to create texturally interesting collage-like works that foster conversations around masculinity, queer identity, latin-american culture. Highlighting the Cuban-American experience and Queer Latinidad the pieces stem from my personal familial experiences and how language and vernacular manifest themselves to create the identities I adhere to now as an adult. My work uncovers these layers of identity and explores where they intersect.
