Yreina D. Cervántez

My work consists of personal and cultural imagery that I have been exploring over time, an expression that is rooted in self-determination and a contemporary Chicana worldview. Themes in my art recall pre-Columbia concepts of duality as well as more historical and autobiographical references, including issues related to a woman’s perspective. Also depicted are the spirituality, politics, and symbolism that reflect bicultural reality.

I prefer to work both in printmaking (lithography, serigraphy, etc.) and watercolor, In my approach I try to create a continuity between these media in terms of themes, expression, colors, and at times technique.
