Carmen Arjona-Ariza

The Annex 20


"Identity is transformed by life:  from the personal, the community and the transpersonal.  My Art explores these transitions.  The concrete uniqueness of the fingerprint, the vulnerability of the figure, and the abstracted shadows waiting to find their solidity in the world, populate my pieces.  Non-traditional mixed media helps me to tap into the immediate state of being where we can celebrate our identity without the boundaries of the body.


My own journey toward my unique artistic identity has grown from intellectual observation and representation to a freer spirit of creation where passion, color and abstract composition flow from the moment.  I extend an invitation to the viewer to connect their journey with my own as they interact with my own exploration of identity."
