Artist Statement Her work employs conceptual and performative tactics to intervene in the photographic processes of cognition and to question the image as the repository of meaning. Her work intervenes in the image making process in order to destabilize the ground upon which it rests. “I aim to complicate the textuality of an image, how it is read, by exposing and complicating the space it seeks to naturalize.”, Garcia said. She has exhibited at The Houston Center for Photography, Blaffer Art Museum, Box 13, HCC Central Fine Art Gallery, Fotofest participating spaces, Rudolph Blume Fine Art Gallery, Los Angeles, CA and New York, NY.
