About the Artist:
Maritza Torres is a Xicanx artist based in Los Angeles. She was born in the suburbs of Murray, Utah in 1983 into a large Mormon family (She no longer practices and is Athiest). Torres and her work are in constant evolution each lending to the other. Currently her work focuses on unraveling and understanding her own Xicanx identity. She believes through understanding the context of her own family’s journey she will hold a mirror to the viewer with the hope of creating space where the viewer can ask:
What part of colonization have I been born into?
How has this effected how I see myself?
How am I being conditioned to perpetuate this cycle?
