Lives and works in Fort Worth, Texas
In order to explore the ever-changing dynamic between individuals that are in complex and multi-layered relationships, Erika Nina Suarez focuses on those closest to her. She began this project by studying her relationships with her parents, siblings, and grandmother, who visits when the weather changes. It was during this time that Suarez found herself doing more self-exploration. In this ongoing body of work, Suarez highlights themes that examine her point of view as a voyeur within her own family, endearment towards “found” family, and quiet spaces within the home that serve as places of emotional attachment to her subjects.
