I am a multidisciplinary artist and activist working in sculpture, performance, video, and installations. I work with my body, ceramics, construction materials, food, and videos to research issues of citizenship, power, heritage, nationality and other personal and political experiences. Navigating tensions of identity through passive and active roles with materials and actions and continuously questioning assimilation is at the core of my practice. I do so by creating objects, compositions, and situations filled with metaphor and intersections in meaning and narrative.
I was born in Mexico and immigrated to California in 2005 where I was an undocumented childhood arrival for almost a decade. I obtained a bachelor's in Studio Arts with a minor in Art History from the University of California Davis. My work has been exhibited at the Museum of Northern California of Chico, the Marin Museum of Contemporary Art, Beacon Project Sacramento, SOMArts South of Market Cultural Center, The Latino Center of Art and Culture of Sacramento, Axis Gallery, among others. I have also been a recipient of the Young Space Grant, the Vermont Studio Center Fellowship, the Hopkins Endowment for Studio Art Students, the Crocker Kingsley Art Award, and the Herb Alpert Scholarship for Emerging Young Artists.
