“Magdalena Campos-Pons works with themes of identity (female and racial), familial ties, and the friction of having a home in Cuba and a home in the United States. Compos-Pons works with 20 x 24 Polaroids that create brilliant in color. She works with costumes to address her thoughts on identity. She often places herself in her photographs with an altered identity. She weaves extravagant hair extensions, constructing nests or tentacle-like braids that twist and entangle the artist, while other objects are in her nest of hair.”

The photographs of María Martínez-Cañas are among the most visually and semiotically complex images of our time – and even, one could argue, of the entire history of the photographic medium. They require the kind of sustained attention and interpretation that we are more used to bringing to works of literature than to works of visual art. Quite literally, her pictures need to be read as much as looked at, since their meanings are embedded in both their overall appearance and their individual images, as well as in the interrelationships of these macro and micro levels of looking.” (…)

Maritza Molina´s work is a self-portrait exploring phases of her life’s encounters, discoveries, and changes. She stages herself in her images, as well as other people and objects. Her artwork derives from a personal experience or standpoint, and reflects how she occupies the world, and how the world that surrounds impacts her life. Allowing these constructed realities to translate into symbolic meanings is an intuitive process, one which she allows to guide her.
