Artist Rosalinda Pacheco’s work involves a contemporary take on traditional symbolism, combining historical themes and significant personal experiences.
Rosalinda Pacheco is a native Nuevo Mexicana who grew up watching her grandmother paint.
“I create paintings that revolve around the manifestation of cultural values. My creation of work involves a contemporary take on traditional symbolism. Patterns are frequently shown to illustrate New Mexican culture. I look to history for more inspiration. Although I want to celebrate culture, I recognize frequent degradation that has occurred throughout history. I combine historical themes and significant personal experiences.
My goal is to illuminate generations and generations of stories that have never been brought into the limelight. My artistic journey enforces human commonalities that transcend barriers such as language, rurality, and poverty. I evoke a genuine contemplation on the cyclic lives of people and the communal celebration of culture that captures uplifting connectivity.”
Pacheco is currently pursuing a BFA in studio art with an emphasis on painting and drawing.
