Victoria Marie Barquin is a Chicago-based artist, printmaker, and arts administrator with a BFA in Printmaking from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Since moving to Chicago, Barquin has developed the collaborative publishing program, Halftone Projects.
"Highlighting the intersection of text, image and architecture, my work honors the deep connection between human beings and the built environment. I use photography to document moments where fragmented text, abstracted image, and layered facades become suggestive of our collective unconscious, our shared experience. Using digital brushes, halftone dots and layer masks, I build sketches of my prints in Photoshop before physically reproducing them via screenprinting—a medium with a long history of interacting with walls and public spaces."
