Identity  

Esmeralda Bobadilla

Esmeralda's work explores identity through self-portraits and cultural reference through Mexican textiles. Her work is created through various media to illustrate the physical and spiritual layers of her identity. Since birth, she has been balancing between her Mexican identity and “American” identity as a form of survival. Through her work, she embodies this relationship through references to native plants, facial features, and other details drawn from life.
