tinola mayfield-guerrero--photography/mixed media art
In my work I address the issues of embodiment, gender, memory and the act of witnessing as a way to discuss and question what was and what might be. The overarching themes: Life is transitory and our world is in part a socially constructed idea. Moments are fleeting. Art becomes an extension of memory, an archive for experience and a way to encourage dialogue.

Using found objects, photography and encaustic; my work captures the contradictions that surround our existence: love/hate, birth/death, beauty/ugliness, horror/peace, intimacy/ loneliness. I also explore substance and impermanence. My work is informed by feminist theory and philosophy and is concerned with questions of gender, questions of the body, questions of existence, notions of beauty and questions of being.
