Carlos Rosales-Silva

Carlos Rosales-Silva is a Mexican and Native-American artist who currently lives and works in New York. His work practice often focuses on current civil rights issues including immigration, customs enforcement (ICE) profiling, gay rights, and women’s health legislation. Rosales-Silva works in a variety of media including sculpture, painting, and digital prints, and uses found objects to create assemblages and installations that reference what he calls “aesthetics of circumstance.” He works to find a balance between his rich cultural past and the simultaneous freedom and oppression of contemporary capitalist society.

Rosales-Silva received a BFA from the University of Texas, Austin and has exhibited throughout the United States, often with Okay Mountain collective.
