“The Constructed Self (2019-2022)" by Karen Navarro is a series of portraits that use collage to visually represent the intersections of identity, self-representation, race, gender, and belonging within first, second, and third-generation American immigrants. Using digital photography as a foundation, Navarro transforms traditional prints into three-dimensional objects by cutting and incorporating tactile elements such as wood, paint, and resin.

The labor intensive techniques she applies to create these sculptural objects not only allow for a physical deconstruction of her images but also become a form of meditation that reflects her efforts in trying to reconstruct and make sense of her own identity.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until June 4.
