Born in Texas to immigrant parents from Jalisco who made their living as labor workers, Curiel spent her formative years assisting them on job sites, where she was introduced to construction materials like plaster, house paint, and grouting tools. Now, these materials form the basis of her palette, drawing the artist back to her cultural roots with each sweep of the trowel. Though contemporary in nature, every Monica Curiel work is, at its core, a celebration of her Mexican heritage and every sacrifice made in pursuit of a better life.
