rearrangements and deconstructions of home
v* inspired by Bonnie Collura’s Prince y Rachelle Mozman Solano’s Metamorphosis ofÂ Failure. Both critiquing male eurocentric “cannon” (that shit we learn in Art History 101 that I ate up.) Solano challenging notions on Gauguin’s fetishism and the “primitive” in his time in Panama.. and Collura—pushing against notions of heroic sculpture. very beautiful. The last image was most impactful to me.
🚨First day in the studio 🚨
nother sketch, this one is a pealed off tape from orlando construction 🚧
Some sketches I did in the last few months~ Whenever I don’t have a studio, I immediately revert to paper, markers, colors, tape, stickers, and do fast sketches. Sharing this bc I often times don’t take these seriously, so here’s some recent work. Pa que no digan que no hecho nada. .
Palm trees, lips, and scribbles, someone remind me to be this playful in the studio now that I have one 🤠🌴
Hbd to this beeb, a fave for over ten yrs❣️
The last two weeks have been the craziest of my life, dealing w all kinds of pests and last minute turns in my living situation where we had to break our lease all while being in FL, then got to NY Monday and ate a burrito crying.. feeling frustrated and kinda pathetic, feeling insanely unsecure and inadequate. .
But in the last three days I found a sick place to live in Crown Heights w a bunch of perks and two rad girls, got a second interview at Powerhouse Workshop, a sick art non profit fabrication studio w public programing and today I got an offer a position as the Communication Associate with a salary higher than what I requested. Ahh hi world this is life bye

(Not an accurate portrayal of my unglamorous life atm. (Just embodying that fake social media persona we all want me to be) Actually filling my time w pompous research to make myself sound somewhat to part to the very unqualified jobs I’m running out of applying and scraping a bottomless jar of critical boredom but darn it I love a good impulsive perreo bc bad bunnisito delivers and the new word I learned this week is grandiloquence, which seems to be substance of this post (might delete soon). Hi)
