A Paradigm of Jealousy, 2022

Acrylic, spray paint, and paper
46 x 57½ in

Based in Oakland and New Mexico but having spent most of her life moving between city centers, the Navajo Nation, and the Gila River Indian Community, Grace Rosario Perkins is interested in disassembling her personal narrative and reassembling it as one that layers words, objects, faces, and signifiers built from cultural dissonance, language, punk ethos, and history. Primarily a painter, Grace also works extensively in printed matter, textiles, writing, and sculpture.

Perkins’ work was recently acquired by SFMoMA.
