Artist Statement:

My art is based on my personal identity which was formed both by watching my parents support the family through labor jobs, and by my mother who emigrated from Panama. My artwork narrates enduring questions of identity with the human figure, labor politics, and mixed-media sculpture. My narrative sculpture reinterprets the visual iconography throughout north and central America with the materials available to working class immigrants today. The figures reveal people who contribute to society by enduring labors which often sacrifice their health and safety. It is a moral imperative for Latin Americans to be celebrated as part of the fabric of US society. Our bodies aren’t solely destined for labor, but also love, joy, and acceptance.
