Estefanía Velez Rodriguez

Estefania Velez Rodriguez is a painter born in Mayaguez Puerto Rico and currently resides in Brooklyn New York. Her paintings are informed by contemporary education in Abstraction as well as personal digestion of cultural normalities within the United States of America. Finishing her MFA in painting with experimental studies in video media, she also creates sketch videos that address identity politics and time rupture. Her paintings formally address questions between abstraction, non-representation, simplification, symbol, and painting as a language with ambiguous structural limitations.

Estefania is interested in pushing the limits in her liminal identity structure; sometimes she can fly like a bird and other times she can only swim like a fish. The moments in which code switching through oral language, painted language, or physical makeup are successful are when navigation through multiple worlds can happen without drawback from the receiver.
