EMPHASIS IN GRAPHIC DESIGN

My work explores universal topics, such as identity, displacement, absence, and reconnection through the implementation of multidisciplinary practices. Although having a strong foundation in graphic design I tend to expand to various mediums, like illustration, sculpture, installation, and photography. I see and approach materials as tools or conductors of information that continuously nurture each other when fused. Materials like cement, wood, fabric, and paper

show a recurrent consistency captivating me due to its contrasted fragility and durability.

Throughout my work process, I've discovered an attentive focus in developing a strong narration to reconnect with my personal story and roots. My pieces often have a poetic content rooted in precise structure and organization of materials, carrying a solid narrative through the use of typographical solutions.

BFA THESIS PROJECT

"Between Islands and Peninsulas” is an installation created for the BFA Show that functions as a metaphor for spatiality altered by the perception of time and context. Using the grid as a way of mapping spatial relations, I reflect on my journey as an immigrant moving from Cuba to Miami. Through the use of text, images, books, and sculptural objects I narrate personal impressions while moving between these grids and revisiting the archives of my memory.
