Maíz Moderno (Modern Corn)
A/P edition of 50, screenprint
Collection Serie Project
Estamos Aquí (We Are Here) brings together contemporary serigraphs by forty artists who took the opportunity to learn a specialized silkscreen print technique from a collaborative Austin-based residency, The Serie Project. Many of the artists speak from the Latino/Chicano perspective and the resulting portfolio of prints expresses their celebrations, sorrows, challenges, popular culture and personal experiences. With vivid colors and sometimes startling imagery, the works in Estamos Aquí encourage the viewer to question the nature of cross-cultural exchange and discover how artists find their voice through personal stories and experiences that become part of the artistic process. The subject matter is as diverse as its creators and the culmination of work celebrates ideas like identity and sense of place.
