“I am fascinated by the social human experience since the first European settlements in the Americas. Its multifarious results are an endless source of inspiration and an essential part of my discourse. This fascination has led me to such themes as the causes and consequences of migration, the mestizo, hybridity, ethnic fluidity, and the consequences of colonization.”
