Martin Olivares, (aka Rabbit Garcia), is an interdisciplinary artist working in drawing, painting, and sculpture. Recent work involves the use of found objects that he recontextualizes to call attention to foreign histories that are in the process of being forgotten. Olivares is interested in giving new meaning to old physical memories that have been disconnected from their origins. His work divulges narratives that are not distinctive to his own story. Subjects include trauma, displacement, and the process of healing from these histories and narratives. Through his work, Olivares aims to create new contexts for these experiences through the investigation and manipulation of found materials.
