Deeply engaged with notions of identity and the intersection of mainstream and historically marginalized cultures, Ronny Quevedo reenvisions pre- and post-colonial iconographies, offering nuanced examinations of personal and social histories. Quevedo incorporates and subverts aspects of abstraction, painting, collage, cartography, and sports imagery in a practice spanning installation, drawings, and prints. This recuperation of indigenous languages of abstraction, the revalorization of their associated labor, and the centering of a living connection between contemporary and centuries-old cultural markers remain key to Quevedo’s ongoing practice.
