Cindita uses assemblage to explore her thoughts and to process difficult, often deeply repressed emotions about the ever-changing world around her. Using found objects, magazine clippings, and textiles, she combines seemingly unrelated pieces to make something strange and new, yet familiar. Her distinctive style emanates her inner struggles with the complexities of the human condition and her expressions are brought to life with contrasting, harmonious colors, bold compositions, and intuitive inclinations.
Cindita began collaging as a means of coping with community violence and childhood sexual abuse to envision new possibilities beyond the violence, trauma, and capitalist consumption. with a deep desire to destigmatize mental health issues, cindita pays homage to her younger self and asks the viewer, to explore, to dream, to be. The collage process is a cultural strategy we depend on to adapt to the inevitable changes of the sociopolitical landscape within and beyond the U.S context.
