Charlotte, NC artist, Suje Garcia, seeks to find a deep connection through cultural dialogue and social exchanges by engaging communities through conversations and art practice. After serving in the military as a Hospital Corpsman, he left with a drive to express feelings by recreating his sensations around mortality, grieving and survival. All of which, were experienced during the war. Throughout his work he uses a variety of materials and approaches. This is metaphorical of the fact that we experience life itself not as or through one thing, but rather through a multitude of diverse sense perceptions, emotional responses and narratives. Creating a sense of tension between the conscious and unconscious awareness of "mark making" and physical constructions is central to his process.
