My preferred art materials at the moment are scrap fabrics, remnants of unfinished projects, personal belongings, found objects, and traditional textiles. I sew, paint, embroider, layer and patch these mediums together using traditional needlework and DIY crafting techniques. Recently I have been deconstructing Latino masculine troupes and iconography. I dissect these images into smaller pieces then sew them back together creating larger playful artworks. In these pieces I embrace ripped holes, unraveling threads, raw edges and slashes revealing layers of multiple identities; my Mexican heritage, Queer affinity, Rocky Mountain upbringing, gender role expectations, punk and crafty tendencies. Like patchwork, all these different identities come together creating something that is unique, fabulous and complicated.
