Vanessa Wallace-Gonzales is  an Afro-Latinx and Ventura, California native artist who uses elements of mythology to explore her identity and personal experiences. Her works consist of figures built from collaging transparent paper, insects, bugs, flowers, leaves while simultaneously playing with body language, distortion, and metaphor. In a visual language exploring the expanses of the human body and mind, a vibrant color palette and organic materials, Vanessa attempts to navigate the complex, imperfect yet beautifully kaleidoscopic nature of a people and thus herself.
