"These Hands," which opens on February 5, is a body of work that explores the ambiguities of cultural identity and the difficulty one encounters communicating in a new society. With the use of color and pattern throughout my work, I hope to evoke a fading memory of my cultural heritage. Symbols and patterns that have references i...n Mayan textile and hieroglyphs reappear throughout the work. Serigraphy, which has a long tradition in Latin American art, affords me many serendipitous opportunities and allows me to evolve the imagery through the layering process. Along with limited edition prints, I will be showing paintings on paper. These explore the social and cultural frustrations one experiences as an immigrant living in Los Angeles.
