Statement

Informed through my cultural background from Mexico and the United States, I address social issues that aren’t openly discussed. I hope to substantiate a voice with an overarching identity of being cast aside.

My work bridges the personal to the social, forming a relationship to immigration, gender inequality, labor, and class issues that have resulted in a population that has been left feeling devalued and lost within their own culture.

Using an altered lace draping technique I take garments of individuals or garments that I have created through a transformation state using porcelain slip.

Drawing from the internal vulnerability carried by each garment the pieces act as imprints of past states, they are a culmination of identities, collected and externalized.
