Freedom Has Never Tasted so Good (2019)
3 minutes 40 seconds

As a visual artist, I use sculpture, installation, photography, and video to challenge the ideas of our society through social and political confrontation. My work is a reflection of ongoing issues that exist in our communities and have personally impacted my life. These issues, as a result, affect the way I move through the world as a Black and Latina woman. I explore topics of identity, race, discrimination, and social hierarchies through the use of everyday objects and other various mediums.

My main goal is to create bold visuals and concepts that challenge my audience to analyze the world around them or expose them to information that they otherwise wouldn’t have known. The topics I highlight are typically swept underneath the carpet OR avoided. For this reason, I aim to create dialogue about social and political issues that are significant to me in order to move us towards equality and justice. As a Black/Latina artist, my underlying foundation is to use my work as a way to expose the voices and truth of those who have been silenced by society.
