Artist statement

“The title Brown Belongings touches many significant points for me. I have always stated that these art works are autobiographical. As a young adult studying and living in Spain and throughout the US, I found myself searching for a place to belong. It was when I returned to Los Angeles to become involved in the Chicano and Indigenous communities that I found my place, artistically, intellectually and culturally. Through Make ‘Em All Mexican I continued my travels by collecting “belongings” and painting them brown to represent my American cultural identity. Finally, I “long” to find a visual language that will open a dialogue about how we see ourselves, how others see us, and the joy that we can find in our differences and the knowledge and understandings that we share together.” – Linda Vallejo
