VAMA Lecture: Jynx Prado & Surge Witrön

Monday, November 22, 2021 at 06:00 PM

Free & Open to the Public


Jynx Prado uses an interdisciplinary practice to question and critique what is natural and artificial within cultures and the world at large. Through humor, irony, language, and symbolism Prado intertwines their experiences and histories as a queer, Mexican-Salvadoran mixed American in their work in a rasquachismo form. Prado graduated from OTIS College of Art and Design with their Master of Fine Arts + Emphasis in Social Practice degree in 2020.

Surge Witrön’s explorative process produces works that combine coexistent traditions in abstract painting, gesture and mark making, through a process of overlaying, erasing, and abrasing. Components of what he coins as personal D.N.A. are embedded through the inclusion of personal artifacts representing matriarchal family members, readymade materials, and repurposed play objects. Surge Witrön is an educator, curator artist and plant enthusiast.
