LESLIE JIMENEZ ARTIST STATEMENT:

The work I produce delves into issues of ethnic liminality; the social and cultural clash between internally-embraced and externally-imposed interpretations of the self, as it pertains to race and ethnic identity.

This is my contribution to the Dominican diasporic community in New York to which I belong. Yet the thought-provoking questions raised through my paintings, prints, sculptures and installations go beyond an original standpoint, into a larger conversation about self-denial and internalized racism among minority populations.
