Teresa Vazquez

Rendition of dream narratives, characters and imagery is a major endeavor that fuels my work.

“My current body of work re-envisions the imagery brought forth by the Symbolists and Surrealists through a multi-dimensional, Afro-Futurist lens. The works take the form of luminous, modern-day illuminations on black backgrounds, numinous ink, watercolor and mixed media mash-ups, paintings in encaustics and acrylics, and more. My dream work goes hand in hand with my artistic practice.”
