ARTIST STATEMENT:

Armendariz was raised in El Paso, Texas, which borders Las Cruces, New Mexico, and Juarez, Mexico. There he was surrounded by a mix of romanticism for the American landscape and the hybridization of Mexican, American, and indigenous cultures. Images that have cultural, biographical, and art historical references are carved and burned into the surface of the paintings, drawings, and prints.

Themes involving power dynamics, explosive love, and destiny make up the conceptual backbone of my work. I use traditional painting and printmaking techniques in combination with non-tradition methods of drawing to achieve my esthetic.
