About

MercadoRemixParte2.jpg

Informed by architectural spaces, my work references objects and materiality through the use of textiles, prints and repeated patterns. Archiving vernacular culture from South Texas such as signage, foods, markets and fruit stands, these recordings become fragments of such cultural hubs and abstracted to create ‘fantasyscapes’ that remix the reality of these spaces. With having bright colors and screen prints of specific foods, I attempt to talk about consumerism, identity and stereotypes that are often held by outsiders and insiders. Through screen printing large textiles, I hope to showcase a vocabulary of my own culture and iconography as a means to empower these spaces.
