Artist Spotlight: Larissa De Jesús Negrón

A selection of work by multidisciplinary artist Larissa De Jesús Negrón. Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Negrón’s process is deeply therapeutic. Driven by introspection and self-discovery as well as an interest in how one processes psychological trauma, Negrón experiments with diverse materials to explore existential issues and curiosities of the subconscious mind. She implements automatism (the performance of actions without conscious thought or intention) to access moments and memories from her life both humorous and painful:

“Negrón tells her most intimate stories through her work and although they require vulnerability, these personal memories serve as a cathartic way to connect with people. In her work, you can find mundane moments that left an imprint in her psyche, such as feelings of inadequacy, fear, doubt, nostalgia, anxiety but also happiness, goofiness and excitement. Her everyday practice, with her work and outside of it, is to become free from her critical mind, to be gentle with all living things and live/work with intention every day. Practices that are intrinsically difficult and at times unbearable to do yet they are vital to a better quality of life.”
