This work of fiber art was created by Tanya Aguiñiga. It is a one-of-a-kind.

The artist explains her work: “An overwhelming sense of grief and impotence overcomes my soul as I grasp to understand my cultural history. Years of power and oppression, dignity, and insignificance. Left only with a coping mechanism for mestizaje, assimilation, and diasporic migrations. My sense of self is riddled with dichotomous punctures. I look to the Popol-Vuh as a source of surreal explanation for my intuitive draw to materials and the absurd. Constantly pushing myself to the grotesque as a source of enlightenment for my own lack of genealogical consciousness.”

Aguiñiga is a LA-based artist, designer, and activist. She was born in San Diego but grew up in Tijuana. As a child, she travelled several hours a day to cross the border to attend school. She went on to earn an MFA in furniture design from Rhode Island School of Design. Her work can be found in the collections of LACMA, Museum of Arts & Design, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and Mint Museum Charlotte.
