Creation out of Chaos at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art in Greensburg, Pennsylvania from June 18 – July 18, 2021.
I use Latin American historical elements, zoo-anthropomorphic figures and pop culture references to convey ideas of human behavior, the nature of political power and societal structures, particularly relating to the experiences of female-identifying individuals. The imagery in my work is rooted in actual places and experiences, but those places and experiences grow and evolve into fantastical landscapes and beings that populate a world where immigrant sensibilities and variations of the theme “home can be explored.Sheila Cuellar-Shaffer
