Maria Laura Hendrix is a Mexican-American interdisciplinary artist, currently living in Southern California. She earned her MFA from Otis College of Art and Design in 2020, and her BA in Psychology from Cal State Northridge. She looks at identity through the materiality of paint by creating portraits that resemble her cultural reality. Her use of deconstruction in the form through fragmentation is an important element in her work, where she interrogates identity through the use of multiple figures fragmented within a picture plane. She deconstructs the image to re-imagine a new form, one that makes sense to how she perceives the world around her.
