Myers Forum Lecture

Folk Hall Auditorium

Combining digital images drawn from popular media culture, art history, and autobiographical sources, Henriquez’s paintings explore the ongoing internal negotiation with media fragments and societal constructions of identity and beauty.

Recurring motifs such as heavily mascaraed eyes, glossed lips, hair, and images of the body tap on encoded meanings and myths, conjuring ideas of female fertility, sexuality, and desire, albeit through an often media biased lens. With a host of materials including paint, resin, glitter, and synthetic hair and fur, her images alternatively function as acts of adornment or defacement when juxtaposed with photo-based imagery.
