Utah is a strange, charming place.
When the pendulum swings too far in one direction, it’s bound to create a vacuum in the equal and opposite direction. For all of its conservatism and strong Mormon presence, Utah possesses a vibrant and extremely well organized counterculture. My new series of paintings explores the interconnectedness of geography & experience in creating a sense of place.
By way of autobiographical and oftentimes confessional artwork, the exhibition centers on my response to my new home environment in Salt Lake City, Utah from a distinctly Latina, American-in-waiting point of view.
This blog was created to share my belief that the art-making process is a catalyst for transformation and personal empowerment. I am living proof.
