Yvette Mayorga, Voyage to the Pink Castle from the Surveillance Locket Series (detail), 2023, Collage, toys, car wrap vinyl, and acrylic piping on panel, 50 in.


Yvette Mayorga is a Latinx artist excavating the American experience from within and outside of the imperial pillars that shape social and cultural norms in the USA, dissects and redirects the personal, feminine, and art historical in mouth-watering Rococo embellishment.

In a lavish pink palette combining food-related imagery, Western art history, and 90’s teenage charm in her eye-popping paintings and sculptural works, personal and family histories meet larger cultural narratives in her extravagant depiction of excess, underscored by the push and pull of social pressures.
