This exhibition features 20 works of art, including several that are among the artist’s largest and most recent. Valdez pieces together varied materials, forms, and traditions of making to construct complex and beautiful paintings. She assembles her brilliantly colored, textured, and patterned work by cutting, dyeing, painting, sewing, and embroidering cloth and paper. Spanning 2013 to 2019, this exhibition explores the artist’s creation of visceral and allusive abstractions.
