Karina Rendon Soy de Aquí, Soy de Allá MFA Thesis Exhibition
Artist Statement: I have been labeled as “The Other” in the U.S due to my Mexican ethnicity despite me living here for most of my life. I explore the process of assemblage and printmaking the experience of displacement between the two countries I call home. Though I adopted the United States’ culture I will always be “The Other”. I am influenced by family’s history and culture to explore the complex migrant experience and the Mexican diaspora living within the U.S. As a Mexican immigrant who grew up in the U.S,
I focus on my own visual culture to reclaim my identity.
