Artist Statement


Jennifer Garza-Cuen is an artist concerned with the complex weave of social structures, with groups and sub-groups and our continued impulse to categorize and define. As a former expatriate American, Garza-Cuen is primarily interested in American themes: American mythology, empire, society, regions, sub-cultures and their norms and customs as well as ideas of 'American-ness' as it affects her own, continuing, self-defining process.

Working in a constructed-documentary style she explores ideas of cinematic memory and cultural inheritance.
