Aimee Garcia Artist Statement
The self-portrait has been a constant in my work. I am not interested in talking about my own life rather about the universal female experience. The work is an invitation to reflect on life, history, memories and the political and social environment through an open existential discourse with multiple implications.
Although painting has almost always been the protagonist, I have sought to interweave other materials that allow me to establish a symbolic game (hair, threads, metal, stones and others). As well as dispensing with it in some works (objects, installations) where the use of materials and the act of intervening them establish a game of meanings and connections.
