Opening Reception: Fidencio Martinez-Perez

Friday, August 23, 2019 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Fidencio Martinez-Perez's current work examines immigration, the drug war, and socio­economic issues affecting Mexico. In his work, Fidencio manipulates newspaper cuttings, maps, paper, and painting surfaces to refer to the crafts and customs taught to him as a toddler in Oaxaca – ones used to celebrate festivals and mourn the dead. For Martinez these techniques are a way to reconnect with a time and place no longer present.
