About The Artwork

Mixed media and hand-sewn fabric onto paper. This painting came about listening to gaitas, the traditional Christmas music in Venezuela. One of the holiday traditions, are the choreography tournaments with gaitas and the shiny and sparkly outfits worn by contestants. The fabrics on this painting comes from my cousin's outfit.

My practice is based on the complicated relationship I have with my country. Reflecting on issues concerning Venezuela, I produce work based on my personal feelings, reactions, disappointments and affections to my country. I think about a memory or play a certain song that gives way to a particular feeling and I try to catch it through gestures and color. I use mark making to portray my instincts while writing letters gives me the space to organize my thoughts and share specific ideas. Moreover, the use of various surfaces allow me to use materiality as another form of expression. I shift from paper, to fabrics from home to more recently, creating surfaces from discarded material as an attempt to have a more sustainable practice whilst exploring the idea of reconstruction. The concept of making something beautiful from accumulated trash is a repeated action that I use as practice for when we can pick up the debris, and rebuild Venezuela.
