Carina BIo: As a Political, Impressionist, Activist and a Xicana Artist, my life requires the direct engagement in community. I observe the world with concern for the future and express my anxiety in my paintings. Turning the lens on myself, I continually strive to do less harm in the world by changing my behavior and try to expose others to reality which they avoid through television and repetitive lifestyle.
In these hard and confusing times, where as an adult I must understand that everything that I do affects the universe, I see people taking sides and deciding who they fit with best. In this exhibition I will Include watercolors and grand oil on canvas pieces where I take my personal stories to capture the collaboration in the city of San Francisco where political, social, educational and artistic systems are always changing.
