New York-based artist Firelei Báez investigates issues of identity construction in her paintings, collages, and drawings. Whether geographical or cultural, selfhood for Báez is malleable, and she uses art to articulate a complex formulation of her Caribbean background. Báez’s visually striking work serves as a defense against culturally predetermined ethnic stereotypes and an attempt to unite communities dispersed across the globe. The artist uses humor and the imagination to create alternate environments in which cultures, disparate or alike, can commune.
