New work by Perla Castaneda and Kristen Freitas

November 5 – 27, 2016

Both artists explore the difference between reality and perception based on social norms and ideas taught to us at young age. Perla and Kristen focus on topics relating to the body and how we can give it praise. They document overcoming personal struggles that are relatable but not often discussed and sometimes seen as taboo. They would like to bring social awareness with their new work.

Perla Castaneda enlightens us on the topic of pregnancy overcoming her personal struggles and the common myths surrounding being pregnant.

Kristen Freitas immerses her work in the topics relating to identity of self-worth, self- harm and body positivity.

While both concentrating on the self, Perla and Kristen showcase a variety of mediums and approaches to thought provoking topics.
