Cartas a México 

Oil paint and photo transfers on artist board (A4 size and A6 size) 


This series explores the relationship between an individual and the larger concept of the nation, questioning how the homeland is personifed through a communal romanticization of what belonging to a country means.

Each painting is a letter addressed to Mexico, written by different individuals. The images that accompany them reproduce the photos or postcards that would be sent along with the letters. This is a collection of the subjective histories that we tell ourselves about our nation, a mediation between mediums, between language and image.
