“Eastside Westside” & “Domestic Narratives”

Galería Guadalupe presents “Eastside Westside” by Ana Fernandez & “Narratives Invented” by Ruth Buentello. A dWhen Ana Fernandez and Ruth Leonela Buentello paint, they’re not just creating art — they’re shaping a legacy. For so long, [email protected] in America have felt a gaping hole where the genuine representation of their culture should be. All too often, there’s a marked discrepancy between their voices and the voices speaking over them. But by painting narrative works that showcase the intimate inner-workings of [email protected] life, the San Antonio-based artistas are constructing a lasting space where their stories can be passed on without interruption. “The one thing that I hope other [[email protected]] will see when they look at my work is, really, themselves,” says Fernandez, known for her detailed depictions of [email protected] environments, as well as her popular food truck Chamoy City Limits. “We haven’t been represented,” she explains. “We’re overlooked. We’re erased … And because we’ve been erased for so long, I want to make portraits through [the] landscape of [[email protected]] entrepreneurs, as [they] exist today.” The inspiration behind Ruth Buentello’s exhibition “Domestic Narratives” is mined from her everyday life as a Chicana. “The biggest influence [in my work] has been these experiences with my family,” she explains. “[Experiences] from around the house; some about joy, some about health, coping with family issues and just the things that we do together.”
