Andaluz’s work resurrects discarded garments and textiles as sculptures and paintings that reimagine liberation post-acculturation. Through the employment of craft techniques and colloquial symbols, Andaluz’s practice examines the distinctions between craft and fine art; folk and fine art; and low-brow and high-brow culture. Andaluz’s body of work also addresses how the ecology of those distinctions manifest within post-colonial, psycho-social, and socio-economic landscapes. Such work has awarded Andaluz residencies, grants and features with ProjectArt NYC, BronxArtSpace, Joan Mitchell Foundation, Bronx Documentary Center, BronxNet, ArtForum, and Aperture Foundation.
