dc.description.abstractMy Master of Fine Arts thesis exhibition, Everything Must Go!, explores the connection between trauma and paranoia. This exhibition asks how this correlation occurs, or more specifically, how the eccentricities surrounding my displacement from my home country of Honduras shaped the mental states I navigate today. The body of work exhibited consists of text-based paintings, objects, and videos, most of which are assisted by shipping materials, like plastic and plywood. These materials are functionally tied to transition, but I present them in ways that relate to a confluence of violent and caring gestures. The work is often presented humorously in order to make the uncomfortable more accessible. A deliberate approach to language plays a major role in conveying the narrative at hand. These works co-opt American idioms and other well-known references to speak about vulnerable inner conflicts centered around unresolved past experiences. Everything Must Go! represents the latest installment in an ongoing investigation into the intersections between my family, national, and cultural history.en_US
