Work by Jose Antonio Ojeda
My art deals with the excavation of identity - striving to resurrect an ancient history and heritage within a modern context. I am interested in the power of community and in how much we can learn from our respective cultures and experiences. Pop culture icons from my youth make their way into my work, combined with the symbols and icons of various world cultures. I am starting to investigate dualities of being; the idea of becoming a hybrid (ex. as with an animal or a machine) for the hopes of improvement.
