Presented as part of a two-month exploration into consumerism and cultural expression in the Bay Area, Root Division’s front gallery will feature a two-person show by Irene CarvajalRea Lynn de GuzmanThrough parallel experiences originating on opposite sides of the world, these Bay Area artists confront universal themes of diaspora and concepts of femininity stemming from their Costa Rican and Filipina heritage. 

Cut From The Same Cloth combines installation, print, and sculptural media with an emphasis on fiber and textiles. Utilizing textiles as a metaphor for a colonized society, Carvajal and de Guzman explore themes of diaspora, hegemony, gender roles, labor, value, and their effects on our psyche.
