Simone
Quiles

Simone Quiles creates paintings, collages, and photographs based on her identity and memory. She has spent her life fantasizing about an island only at a distance, and often through the gaze of stereotypes conceived and constructed at the confluence of colonialism and capitalism. Her work primarily explores themes of diaspora, magical realism, and the societal fetishization of her body as an Afro-Puerto Rican woman. She strives to investigate her relationship to the Caribbean and unearth the soft but painful tensions between myth and reality.
