Born in 1994 in Guatemala City, Guatemala


Maria Vargas Aguilar received a BFA from Bennington College. She begins her collaged paintings in Photoshop, where she digitally constructs and reconfigures images composed of archival material and ephemera. The process of digital removal, covering, and editing reflects the themes of fragmentation, distortion, and the inexpressible forms of memory in her work. Her paintings incorporate a variety of materials, such as acrylic, ink, rubbers, and plastics, often featuring herself as subject.
