Iliana Garcia

Painter, printmaker, and installation artist Iliana Emilia García specializes in large-format drawings on canvas and paper. Each work presents her poetic and emotional examination of an object’s history. An ever-present motif in her oeuvre, the chair is a domestic object and instrument that relates to tradition and “concepts of emotional history, collective and ancestral memory, and intimacy.” García digs deeply into the ancestral processes of legacy, survival, and the dynamic relationships between generations and places.
