Yasmine Nasser Diaz navigates overlapping tensions around religion, gender, and third-culture identity using personal archives, found imagery and various media on paper as well as installation. Born and raised in Chicago to parents who immigrated from the highlands of southern Yemen, her mixed media work often reflects personal histories of the opposing cultures she was raised within.
Part of Yasmine Diaz's practice is an ongoing series of intuitive collage work. What begun as a of warm-up exercise to her studio day has evolved into a collection of compositions ranging from the surreal and seemingly nonsensical to wry and biting social commentary.
