EL FUTURO ES MIO
2018, Silkscreen and acrylic on plexi mirror
Through her personal experiences as a Hispanic female in America, Zacarias’ artwork explores cultural and racial identity. Originally inspired by Byron Kim’s Synecdoche, Zacarias created a site-specific installation using plexi-mirrors. She painted some of the pieces in various skin tones and then screen printed the phrase “El Futuro Es Mio” (Spanish for “The Future is Mine”). Zacarias wanted the viewer to repeat this mantra as they looked themselves in the mirror alongside various skin tones. She wanted to remind the viewer that despite whatever our current socio-political environment may be, you are the only one who gets to define your future.
