As a Mexican and Native American artist living in the United States, Carlos Silva-Rosales works to find a balance between his rich cultural past and the simultaneous freedom and oppression of contemporary capitalist society. Silva-Rosales works in a variety of media, including sculpture, painting, and digital prints, and he uses found objects to create assemblages and installations that reference what he calls “aesthetics of circumstance.” His work calls attention to the creative ways in which people make the most of available resources, such as hand painting murals instead of using expensive digital printing, and using stucco and bright colors on buildings to conceal inexpensive craftsmanship. According to the artist, his composite style “looks and feels like it was made in another, more soulful dimension, a dimension where style rules over substance (and is always half price).”
