Beyond the Surface brings together the work of Claudia Arcia (Venezuela), Roxana Brongo (Uruguay-Canadian), Silvia Lopez Chavez (Dominican Republic), Monica Martinez (Mexico), and Claudia Quigua (Colombia). These artists have a unique relationship with new media, digital photography, video production, and mix media. Their individual processes heavily influences by design practices, help them create new landscapes and fantastic worlds to explore the meaning of transformative human emotions. Individually, each artist present spaces for action and reaction, while marrying the lines between dueling impulses, creating hybrid realities and objects with passion. Collectively, they search to fill the voids in the intimate conversations in society about art and the female Latin American artist.
