ABOUT THE ARTIST

Working between Tijuana and San Diego, artist Griselda Rosas explores themes of cultural hybridity as they relate to identities. Rosas’ work is guided by her experience of living in a border region that is in constant migratory flux. She incorporates historical art and cultural references that become allegories of identity, gender, and violence inherent to the bi-national territory. Employing embroidery techniques on popularly traded fake-ostrich-skin, often associated with garb from an ostentatious subset of Mexican culture, Rosas addresses gender roles, the movement of goods, and consumption existent in the border area cultural exchange.
