"Exploring the superficial labels of cultural identity, Con Ajo Y Baroque draws
on the kinship between two artists and their mutual backgrounds growing up in San Antonio. Combining nostalgia from childhood, familiar ritual, religious oppression, middle class tension and iconic imagery with their academic knowledge of Western art and culture, Con Ajo Y Baroque pushes the boundaries of identity-based art into the realm of social critique and contemporary expression."
