Chapter 1: New Taxonomies

Chapter 1 is a new beginning brought on by migration. Upon moving to Nebraska, I found myself focusing on my memories of Colombia more and more, while also beginning to take stock of my new environment. I began making a taxonomic inventory of not only the world around me, but the artistic techniques at my disposal. This chapter enmeshes the imagery of Colombian indigenous works, historic lace, and animal depictions from Colonial documentation, crafting an environment where multiple cultures co-exist.
