Growing up as a sissy-boy who hated gym, craft was a way to create my own safe space where my love of American pop culture and Mexican upbringing could coexist. Through stitching my work explores intersectional identities rooted in immigrant experiences, gender expectations, HIV+ survival, and queer sensibilities. I braid traditional quilting techniques with digitized prints, using colors and patterns that both clash and complement each other. Through sewing I create Frankensteinian-like work that embraces layers, unraveling threads, and raw edges. In the process I challenge gender roles and acculturation anxieties through visual code switching.
