Bloom Projects: Adrian Esparza
El Paso-based Adrian Esparza garners much of his source material and artistic inspiration from his borderland experience. Through a series of deconstructed serapes, reassembled ceramic sculptures, and paintings on bed sheets, the artist explores his daily encounter with this political divide and perpetually challenges generally accepted boundaries and hierarchies.
