"I think that, when you understand a Latino or ethnic sensibility, being simultaneously happy and sad is not a problem. Nor is it fundamentally contradictory. And so there’s a bitter-sweetness in the work, which I trace back to that identity base. There is also the idea that the sequence of time in the work is multiple, a kind of late Surrealism which is fully declassified in some ways in art making. I think that the Surrealist component can still be traced to that."
