MEET THE ARTISTS
JULIANA CHAVEZ | RESPECT NM WOMEN AND FAMILIES FEATURED ART
Through my work as an artist, I have explored many different concepts. Art itself is an exploration that I continue to learn from. My work is a collection of visual manifestations of my subconscious. The fantastical and dream-like elements that mix with reality of day to day life are a subgenre of surrealism that I try to create using watercolor, or mixed media. Art helps heal and bring people together. It provokes thought and emotion. It sparks new creativity, and it is a reflection of life. Art is powerful, and I use it as a tool to navigate my emotions and spirituality in our physical world.
