The works in Farmas (Farmersville, CA) are a culmination of images and objects that connect and disconnect people culturally, despite their physical locations.  Iconic Mexican pop albums from Los Bukis and Los Caminantes, curvy mannequins, bootleg colognes and fake gold earrings, can be found at flea markets (mom and pop shops) throughout the United States and Mexico.  The commercial presentation of the work mimics that of a fancier mall and raises question about place and how it separates and defines who and what is acceptable, while simultaneously exploring the idea that one’s culture is not solely defined by their nationality.

Farmas, debuted at Arts Visalia Visual Art Center, California (2014) and traveled to Casa Siglo XIX Museo-Sebastian, Chihuahua City, Mexico (2014-15).
