Description
With these questions in mind, I find visual and tactile inspiration in objects, materials, and activities that are ordinary, but have the potential to maintain a voice when combined or altered. In my sculptures and installations, I utilize recognizable experiences to question cycles of desire, consumption, desire,… developed in "the pursuit of happiness."
Background
Leticia Bajuyo creates, lives, and teaches in Hanover, Indiana where she is an Associate Professor of Art at Hanover College. After earning an MFA in 2001 from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and a BFA in 1998 from the University of Notre Dame, she came to Hanover College to join the Art and Art History Department. Growing up and living in the Midwest, specifically in areas that often feel in-between other places, the landscape and the pace of rural communities has influenced Leticia's aesthetics. Additionally, growing up in a biracial, bicultural, and bilingual household helped generate Leticia's interest in blending and combining dissimilar ideas and materials in search of commonalities. In her sculptural work, questions about happiness and perspective materialize in objects such as soap or bus stops and in activities such as playing board games and mowing grass. Recent solo exhibitions include pre-fabulous environments in the Olin Art Gallery at Washington and Jefferson College in Washington, Pennsylvania, divertissement at Eastern Washington University in Cheney, Washington, and forces of nature: hurricanes and slinkys at Vanderbilt University’s Space 204 in Nashville, Tennessee. Recent group exhibitions include Looped Life at Gallery 1078, Chico California and On A Pedestal and Off the Wall at The Sculpture Center, Cleveland, Ohio. Upcoming in June 2009, Leticia will be exhibiting sculptural installations yard upkeep and forces of nature: tornados and hula hoops at 516 Arts in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
