Born in Northern Bay Area California. Currently living and working in California
The experiences I had growing up in a bicultural family, Mexican and Caucasian, fuel the imagery and exploratory media in my work. Over time, I began to recognize cultural dichotomies and to accommodate conflicting viewpoints based on context. With a constantly shifting sense of identity, I construct imagery through my work that is informed by images, technology, and memory. Painting in layers, I use masking techniques to jumble formal qualities such as abstraction and realistic representation. Recently, I have sourced imagery from Google Street View, the NASA API and social media networks as a way to trace the effect technology has on the construction of images. The combination of divergent elements suggests a pluralistic reality bridging the historical framework of painting, self and the influence of technology on image making. Recent projects in programming use API data to address mapping and discovery where simulation wags the tail of reality.
