Visiting Artist Series November 17, 2007 Jaime Guerrero Hot Glass Sculpting, Saxe Fellowship 2006 Award Winner
Being a first generation Mexican‑American, Jaime has used glass art to explore his origins, which has not only enabled him to express his views on culture and heritage, but has simultaneously provided him with a means by which to acknowledge the ways aspects of our heritage continue to inspire us, even in the face of cultural uprooting. Much of Jaime’s recent conceptual work (such as the “Homies” series) serves as an inquiry into the ways in which culturally specific products of consumer/pop culture have infiltrated our public psyche and demonstrated ways in which these pop culture icons have integrated themselves into our personal histories, engendering both new dialogues and new meanings.
