09/26/2022. for the last couple of years I’ve been writing about my character, and new series. And when I say writing, I mean, applying to different things, mostly residencies, grants, workshops, and proposals in general. (note: when i write in my blog, i feel not pressure, like nonone is watching, and it makes my mind feel fresh) -- and so to that, I want to share my latest, art statement, or who or what this new work is about: (second note: i am also learning not to reveal of my secrets when I write).

Spanish: 

Cherry Wood es un carácter ficticio desarrollado alrededor de los temas de trabajo, sexualidad, morbo, genero físico, percepción visual, economía tercermundista, capitalista, y tradiciones familiares.

La ideología del carácter es presentado por medio de acciones del cuerpo, esculturas, sonido, y mas recientemente en texto, con preguntas de selección multiple y palabras con doble sentido. El trabajo en si, presenta situaciones en cual, el carácter accede espacios donde existe el prejuicio, ya sea uno determinado, o asignado con acciones repetitivas, como lavar ropa.

Actualmente Cherry Wood es parte de una series de residencias artísticas por nueve meses que empezaron en la primavera de este año, proyecto fundado por el Council de Arte del Gobierno del Canadá.


English:

Cherry Wood is a fictional character developed around the themes of work, sexuality, morbidity, physical gender, visual perception, third world economy, capitalism, and family traditions.

The character's ideology is presented through body actions, sculptures, sound, and more recently in text, with multiple choice questions and words with double meanings. The work itself presents situations in which the character accesses spaces where prejudice exists, be it a specific one, or assigned with repetitive actions, such as washing clothes or golf swings in the cemetery.

Cherry Wood is currently part of a nine-month series of artist residencies that began in the spring of this year, a project funded by the Government of Canada's Art Council.

September 02,2022. I am troubled, exaushted, and persueded so easily, that I am beginning to think these are symptoms of capitalism. Capitalism as ilness exist, and like all deseceases, it grows and expands with more microorganism like myselfs feeding it constantly, everyday. I am sure there is a cure, but addictions is tougght, and dependency, no money, debts, sepultation. CONSTANT. RABIA, DECEPTION, DEPENDENCY.
