Looking for a Hero
Solo Exhibition, Transart Foundation for Art & Anthropology
Houston, Texas. March 29 -May 29, 2019
"Looking for a Hero, or Whips, Whims and Wigs and Gio Ponti is just an Excuse" opens a dialogue about problems related to domestic labor and immigration. The focus of investigation is centered around my memories of growing up in Venezuela. However, as an adult and living in the USA for 19 years has allowed me to see that this problem exists here and worldwide. Through this body of work, I infiltrate these issues of social inequalities by appropriating the ornamental aspects associated with folk art and geometric abstraction.
