ARTIST STATEMENT

ALEJANDRO BECERRA

I was born in 1977 in Jucutacato, Uruapan, Michoacan, Mexico. In 1979 my parents left Mexico for the United States to escape poverty.


After settling in Los Angeles, California, everything promising about our new future was destroyed; the sacredness of my family’s unity and spiritual connectedness to the divine were damaged in the mix of madness and fragmented dreams.


I currently live and work in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. My work is inspired by the vast nature of the “interconnection of the fragments” that deal with the mind, body, and soul. These resonate in an intimate and collective sequence.


My connection to spiritual experiences, healing, and faith in things unseen are influences from which I extract powerful energy which helps me balance everyday life and art.
