November 5- December 1 2017
The Times Club gallery at Prairie Lights presents: Dacaments: works by Fidencio Fifield-Perez. Please join us for the opening reception, Saturday, November 11 from 5-7pm in the Prairie Lights Cafe.
Fidencio Martinez was born in Oaxaca, Mexico, but raised in the U.S. after his family migrated. His current work examines the debate over borders, edges, and the people who must traverse through them. In his work, Martinez manipulates paper, surfaces, and maps to refer tot he crafts and customs taught to him as a toddler in Oaxaca- ones used to celebrate festivals and to mourn the dead. For Martinez these techniques are a way to reconnect with a time and place no longer present.
Martinez received his MA & MFA from the University of Iowa in 2015 and is now based out of Des Moines. Recent group exhibitions include the Smithsonians's Art Intersections: AsianLatino Popup Gallery, Fresh Prints: The Nineties to Now at the Cleveland Museum of Art, DUMA Biennial at the Dubuque Museum of Art; The Annual at the Chicago Artist Coalition; Somewheres & Nowheres: New Prints 2014 at the International Print Center in New York. Recent solo exhibitions were held in Illinois, Iowa, North Carolina, Tennessee, Missouri, and Maryland.
