Let’s skip the ‘why’ and get to the the ‘what + how’.
I want to talk about the seemingly mundane and everyday.
The paletero pushing his little cart across a blazing sun in some Southwestern town. The gay couple browsing cake decorations for their big day. And women walking into a clinic to receive health services.
These daily acts of existence have become reluctant acts of bravery because certain people & authoritarian voices have collectively decided to fuck up their day.
Through mixed media painting, collage, & cross-mediums do I look to embody the diverse approach of art-making as the voice of these diverse people and ideas that have a common struggle: the right to exist.
I’ve always wanted to be a troublemaker, and sometimes I get away with it through angry & loud art.
p.s. All reactionaries that prioritize legality over morality, you’re simply that, fake outrage.
