Artist statement: 

Through painting, photography, interactive community projects, and installation art, visual artist Sol Diaz explores personal narratives, history, and the poetic relationship between nature and man. Guided by this inspiration, and working from their own relationship to colonization as a Brown and Queer person, Diaz crafts an animist vision of growth in marginal spaces. Their work as a whole stands on its own as a quiet, spiritual, and radical act.
