consider myself a cultural archivist and look to current events as the primary
motivator of my work. My world view is irrelevant and hardly plays a role in
the work I create. The fact that I am a Chicano is inconsequential; I am an
artist, period. I am more concerned with how I interpret information that is
served up to consumers—product and political. My response is visceral and immediate.
My motto is "Appropriate, Deconstruct, and Regurgitate." I feel that creating
enough residue will ensure some survival of my progeny (work) so that future
historians will determine its value outside of current art/business hierarchies.
