Assembling Self

August 21 - December 18

Marianna Jimenez Edwards, Fringe, mixed media on panel, 2020

Immersed in the discovery of her ancestral Mexican culture, Marianna Jimenez Edwards, a Mexican-American artist, presents a body of work that reveals her research of textile design, archaeology, and the ephemera of her family. From beneath veiled layers of paint emerge stamps and fragments of envelopes from family letters sent between the U.S. and Mexico as well as found paper, book pages, and vintage National Geographic advertisements and photos. Jimenez Edwards’ work composes collaged images to convey the fragile nature of living in the U.S. as a Mexican-American between two different worlds, the impact of being separated from one’s culture, and its effect on being seen as Mexican in American spaces.
