> DESCRIPTION
Hudson Guild presents the solo show of LMCC Art for Space Resident Elisa Velazquez. Herwork explores the themes of identity and culture both external and internal. In the her show titled “Created in her own image” she presents a series of mixed media portrait painting, drawings and crocheted sculptures made during her residency of 2010-11. These works were inspired by traditional portraiture, religious iconography and the interactions and experiences she had with the participants of the Hudson Guild. She plays with the roles and titles that society places on women: saint, sinner, princess, beauty queen, wild woman and makes them in her own image.
