ARTIST STATEMENT

My work reflects on the social and political powers that affect me, an immigrant and a Latin woman, and my community. The organic and geometric shapes emphasize the heterogeneity of my New York neighborhood, with all of its classes, genders and races. My work comes from a sense of belonging to a community.  Still, I am also inspired by individuality, differences and innovation. I find inspiration in my daily life, particularly my experiences and thoughts about the treatment of minorities and immigrants. 

The protagonists of my work are law enforcement officers and immigrants, two models that our society sees as opposites. These models metamorphose, there is a symbolic transformation, they are connected and fluid. It's a rethinking, a mutation of two protagonists separated by class, race and social status. 

My models are not silent. They are committed to a social service. They highlight organizations dedicated to helping immigrants. For that purpose I used the expanded media of photography to bring the viewers' attention to the immigrant voice, which in this case takes the form of an advertisement.

My work is black and white with a small area of color. This is a strategy often used in advertising to draw attention to a focal point, which here is a speech of solidarity and commitment.
