Martine Gutierrez's "Demons" and the Queer Latinx Experience


Martine Gutierrez's Demons feature is one rich with detail and commentary. Color, texture, and shape come together beautifully to provoke conversation regarding issues of gender and sexual identity. Gutierrez's art is heavily influenced by her experience and vice versa. From the Yoruba deities of western Africa to the Mayan and Aztec gods of Mesoamerica, she transcends ethnicity, gender, and even divinity to reveal her truths about being a trans Latinx woman. Reclaiming aspects of her culture erased by colonialism and the patriarchy, Gutierrez creates an artistic spread that emanates a sense of power and strength in her identity.
