Kathy Sosa - South
San Antonio-based artist Kathy Sosa creates intensely colored and patterned art that draws upon the cultural heritage of the indigenous peoples of Mexico and Guatemala. Her paintings, which often focus on women, incorporate traditional textiles, garments and folk art objects.
“I explore the territory known as Borderland. It’s a colorful, joyous place where the confluence of cultures creates something new. A blended culture, a blended language, a blended cuisine, even a blended sense of self. Many women where I live search out and use the textiles, costumes and folk art forms from the regions of their ancestors as a way of celebrating their indigenous roots. Others seek them simply for their beauty. Either way, the relationship of women to culturally rich, meaningful objects is immensely rewarding, and offers a bountiful imagery that I never tire of expressing.”
