Fidencio Fifield-Perez and Vanessa González: Location, Location, Location 
Dixon Gallery and Gardens
July 30 - October 8, 2017
Reception AUGUST 17, 


Fidencio Fifield-Perez was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, but was raised in North Carolina after his family migrated. His current work examines immigration, the drug war, and socio­economic issues affecting Mexico. In his work, Martinez manipulates newspaper cuttings, maps, paper, and painting surfaces to refer to the crafts and customs taught to him as a toddler in Oaxaca – ones used to celebrate festivals and mourn the dead. For Martinez these techniques are a way to reconnect with a time and place no longer present.

Fidencio Fifield-Perez is based out of Iowa and is currently completing the Galveston Artist Residency in Galveston, TX.
