My practice draws on the materiality of performance, image, movement and mass to explore the boundaries of presence and absence, realism and abstraction, proximity and distance, and tangible and the ephemeral. Always interwoven with my personal history as a queer, transgender Argentine-American, I am interested in making work that addresses the complexities and contingencies of what we call identity, as my own is difficult to define. 

As I work through these complicated networks of lineage and identity, my art practice has been increasingly guided by Édouard Glissant’s theoretical writings on opacity to frame my work. I am interested in making work that challenges the way we see difference. Glissant’s demand for the right to opacity is a political position and, for me, also an artistic strategy. I deliberately obscure and complicate the simplification of seeing by making work that cannot be easily reduced; I use forms of obscuring and withdrawal to resist visual registers that often encourage the desire to know before relating.
