My work traverses photography, paint, and embroidery and reflects on the social and political powers that affect me, an immigrant and a Latin woman, and my community. Typically, law enforcement officers and immigrants are the protagonists of my work. Separated by class, gender, and social status, my characters have hybrid gender identities. The officers are placed upside down with an intent to disrupt power structures while the immigrants are the ones who feel the deepest impacts of systemic power imbalances.
I often work from vintage pictures that I manipulate with modern technology. I use them to illustrate the flow of time and to throw light on current social conflicts. I believe that the role of the artist is to give society the tools to resist discrimination and to protest all other injustices.
