Work and Reflections by Elan Cadiz
Opening reception: Tuesday, October 29, 5:00 – 6:30 p.m.
Artist’s Gallery Talk: 5:30 p.m.

Élan Cadiz is an interdisciplinary, multi-ethnic, multi-racial, North American, native New Yorker, and visual artist who deconstructs and balances her intersectionality through her creative projects. Élan’s art and practice are grounded in the documentation of her personal narrative through the use of portraiture, domestic and historical imagery.

Cadiz’s artworks explore the ways societal and personal histories overlap and affect individual relationships, power dynamics and identity. The materials she works with are influenced by the subjects she discuss which is why she moves skillfully through mediums, combining and collaging the best materials to convey her visual language.

Cadiz’s intention is to speak to the boundless potential in humanity and ways our pasts can inform our future for the better, despite impediments that arise. Her goal is to have viewers question their condition(s) in ways that bring about helpful inner inquiry and thoughtful discussion.
