Latricio Antoinette Perez is a queer identifying artist of Trinidadian and Cuban descent who considers herself a work in progress. Portals is her expression of that progress: where she’s been, where she’s at, and her hopes for the future. By opening these small windows into her world, Latricio reaches out to connect with those she has lost along the way. Elements of healing and hope weave through her abstract narratives as Latricio strives to be the light in the darkness. Characters emerge as archetypes or surrogates of the artist herself, pulling her from her default world and into one of her own making. Through her own struggles with mental health, Latricio continues to challenge herself, grow, and create. And though she is not completely healed, these murals serve as part of her ongoing process and let others on their own journeys know that they aren’t alone.
