Biography

The connective theme in Mariángeles Soto-Díaz’s work is the artist’s native country of Venezuela—particularly its industrial history and what she summarizes as “legacies of modernism and their utopian ruins.” Soto-Díaz’s practice varies widely in medium, ranging from collaborative projects and performances to installation and painting. For example, _Never Underestimate a Monochrome _(2012) was a participatory work that took the final form of a website. Some of Soto-Díaz’s memorable raw materials include Latin American spices and the UPC codes found on consumer products gathered from families over time. Several of her works directly or indirectly respond to the art of modernist painters such as Ad Reinhardt and Sol LeWitt.
