Statement

Carmen Lizardo's artwork weaves personal stories, historical, political, and cultural heritages to speak about immigration, race, transmutation, memory, and identity. Her work always begins as an Autobiographical/Auto-portrait experience and describes the human need to situate oneself in history, mainly, the one belonging to the American Cultural Collective.
