Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Let's talk
by Diaz-Llamas, Harry, M.F.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2011, 8; 1493111
Abstract (Summary)

My project exhibition Let's Talk is comprised of ten screen prints and four paintings ranging in size from 18 inches by 24 inches to 25 inches by 38 inches, all works on paper.

This body of work explores the ambiguities of cultural identity and the difficulty one encounters communicating and assimilating in a new society. With the use of color and pattern throughout my work, I hope to evoke a fading memory of my cultural heritage. Symbols and patterns that have references to Mayan textile and hieroglyphs appear throughout the body of work.
