Florida- Alba Baez


Acrylic on Canvas
36" x 36" x 1.5"


Based on my perspective as a Dominican immigrant with a Catholic upbringing, I choose to depict the dichotomy of reality and expectations with exaggeration and humor. At times, I tempt people to touch my work with the alluring and plush form of a stuffed canvas. I turn painted canvas into pillows by stuffing them with polyfil. The intention is to create an experience that is both confrontational and playful while provoking a dialogue between myself and the viewer.
