Melanie Figueroa

My work is an exploration of the cultural memory, preservation and our emotional connections to societal artifacts, depicting the fading icons of our modern timescape and instilling viewers with a sense of delight and comfort within our busy modern society.

Urban Vignettes are a glimpse into small unexpected moments found in our familiar residential settings, the elegant erosion of man-made constructs and nature’s perseverance within metropolitan environments.

Addressing nostalgic feelings of home, familiarity and community, I express the accidental beauty present in unassuming places and challenge our perceptions of progress.

I work in acrylic paints, on both canvas and woodblocks.
