Screen Shot 2018-06-23 at 11.21.13 AMadela c. licona’s photography captures surface and depth. with camera in hand, she studies facets, textures, colors, patterns, & forms at times to document and at times to interrogate the mundane. she approaches her object photography as well as her eco-scapes, arte urbano/city-scapes, and body-scapes as “assemblages of stories so far.” through a developed intensity in focus, her photographs often invite deeper inspections of the everyday. her work, referred to as “contemplative” and “queer” and noted for its depth as well as its “delicacy & intimacy,” often explores interstices, propinquities, blurred boundaries, & bent light. as artist, scholar, & public rhetor, she is interested in provoking & participating in new ways of seeing & looking — reorientations, meaningful distortions, & re/visionings that are informed by — and might also inform — radical re/imaginings of being, belonging, and relating to one another, to everyday objects & everyday-scapes, to histories & bodies, to places & practices, and to the earth.

“What happened that night is savagely ordinary, one of countless acts of violence so many women bury, imposing forgetfulness over them like layers of river silt.” Beth Jacob
