Statement

“Man is a creature of the between,” wrote philosopher Martin Buber. Since my youth, I’ve used paper collage as a medium to claim and find company in the experience of liminality. A driving force behind my art is the desire to create archetypes and mythos that show ambiguity and ambivalence as something whole and powerful rather than defective and toxic. I aim for the figures in my paper menagerie to be guides and guardians for whomever will make a binary - between man and woman, flesh and technology, beauty and deformation, psychosis and sanity - their battleground. 

Lorca is an entirely self-taught artist, and a member of RAW Artists collective for independent creators in Chicago. They were chosen as a distinguished artist in Art Ascent Magazine’s “Haunting” issue and received honorable mention in Art-Competition.net’s international juried competition “Mind, Spirit and Emotion II.” Their work has been featured at Chicago’s State of the Art showing in December 2015, the 365 Days 365 Artists Project, Chicago Literati magazine, and the Transistor and Essentia galleries in Chicago. Prints of their work are for sale through their website, lorca-thepapergheist.tumblr.com and their work can be purchased as clothing at lorcas-the-papergheist on Print All Over Me.com.
