b. 1997, Los Angeles, California
My work centers my lived experiences, identity, and personal objects in intimate and domestic spaces through the creation of sculpture, installation, and photography. I look at the homes I grew up in and their objects that shape these interiors, specifically the characteristics within the Latin-American diaspora. I am interested in the colored walls, cartoon plushies, written letters, and the abundance of archives and heirlooms that have been passed down and exchanged across households. I pay attention to the detailed forms of decoration that unite Southern California homes with the ones my family migrated from. I see ornaments collected as a means to heal and fill voids created by distance, separation, and time. My practice works through themes of collection, obsession, familial kinship, and symbolic expressions of love and romance.
