Mari Hernandez: Figments of Truth

Mari Hernandez makes photographic self-portraits exploring identity and construction of the self. Focusing on inward concerns to generate visual narratives, she creates distinct aesthetic moods, as well as references to cultural mores and art historical movements. Acting as a photographer, subject, make-up artist, and designer she alters her identity and physical appearance through the use of make-up, prosthetics, wigs, costumes, and props. Through these narratives, she reinterprets histories and proposes new ones. Elements of performance distinguish her work from other modes of photography and highlight the staging of identity, gender, and action.
