Cement, on the surface, the material alludes to construction but, transformed in my studio, it reflects the ways in which my life has been shaped by political reality.
Construction of identity interlaces with construction of landscape.
I use cement as paint where not only the borders of my region are explored, but also ideas about painting and the limits of this medium. I am interested in pushing the boundaries of the material, challenging both ideas about art and ideas about politics. With these visual works I seek to offer the insulated viewer in a white cube a bridge to the political world outside.
