Salvador Jiménez deepens his exploration on issues of Chicano identity in a bold quest into graphic media. This exhibition sees Jiménez using printmaking and graphite as a way to dissect the modern social connotations of being Mexican-American. The use of line to explore these themes is emphasized in both the unique granular textures of his linocuts and the energetic line work in graphite. Jiménez simultaneously questions and celebrates his own personal and artistic journey to the US as well as that of the collective voice of others who are struggling to understand what it is to be Mexican and American
in this place and time.
