Unknown Ancestors pays homage to my grandmother, a Mexican immigrant, no longer with us, but still a large influence on the art I make and the concepts I explore within it. While spending a large portion of my childhood in my grandmother’s care, my creativity was fostered and I was influenced by my grandmother’s deep love for nature. While done out of caution and care, I believe my family’s American assimilation created a barrier to my ancestral culture that I still continue to grapple with today. I find myself using my art as an attempt to build a bridge and make a deeper connection with my Mexican heritage. The images from this collection are from photo references of my travels within Mexico.
