Clarissa Gonzalez is an artist printmaker, raised in multiple cities across South America, Europe, and Texas. By overlapping color, line, and texture, Gonzalez’s work considers the social influences of colonialism, geographic bias, authority, and nationalism amongst shifting global cultures. Her work utilizes printmaking processes to create unconventional representations of global bodies and aesthetically claim agency over the fallible nature of maps; displaying simultaneity of space and time while dissolving concepts of national identity, borders or boundaries to illuminate a need for better understanding across cultures. She received the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art from the University of Texas at Austin in 2013 and the Masters of Fine Arts in Printmaking from Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi in 2020. Prior to attending graduate school, Gonzalez was a member of Slugfest Printmaking Gallery and Workshop in Austin, Texas.
