Estar aqui y alla. No poder estar ni aqui ni alla.
My current artwork, which includes painting, drawing, collage, photograph, sewing, writing, and computer work, provides a layered exploration of the convoluted nature of the neo-colonial citizen.
By combining historical research and personal narratives, as they relate to the concern of circular migration and mobile livelihood, I investigate how family histories about moving between different geographical areas are part of the Puerto Rican historical condition of intense waves of migrations.
By using different materials and by incorporating diverse techniques, my work also explores themes related to the nature of hybridism and the shifting identities of the transnational citizen.
