Current Work > My One Brown Arm : Exploring my heritage.

Through a variety of media, building on the ideas of historical fascimile construction and contemporary art assemblage, I will explore how my Latin American heritage fits into the wholeness of my identity. I will be creating contemporary family heirlooms (props) that look old, and fill in the gaps where no objects may have existed, or weren't in our possesion.
