From Daisha Board Gallery:
“”We remember the people who saw us when we couldn’t really see ourselves.”
Joy Reyes (b.1999) is a self-taught multidisciplinary artist who uses spirituality, religious ideals, and her Jewish/Mexican culture throughout her artwork.
She often intertwines these consistent themes together through the use of subtle symbolism, vibrant contrasting colors, and mixed textures. Inspired by her vastly different cultures and life experiences, Reyes creates to invoke others to look beneath the surface, to find a connection to their own life through her art.
“The Garden Where I Grow”, is a story of finding yourself after being lost. The tale of growing from a garden that nurtures you into maturity and leading yourself on the path of rediscovering who you are by looking through your past and finding the roots that take you back to the garden that raised you.
The series of paintings explores Reyes’s identity with her culture and family history. Reyes displays the intimate moments of her Abuelita and her mother’s life that have similar parallels to her life experiences now. She discovers who she is with a possible blossoming future within her and the generation to come from the seeds she has been planting by looking inwards.
“The garden where I grow ” is a discovery of hope for a fulfilling future by examining one’s past from the roots up.
Let’s welcome Joy Reyes to the Daisha Board Gallery Family!”
