Artist Statement

Maia Cruz Palileo is a multi-disciplinary artist. Migration and the permeable concept of home are constant themes in her paintings, installations, drawings, and animations. Influenced by oral history of her family’s arrival in America from the Philippines and growing up in the Midwest, Maia infuses these narratives with memory and imagination. When stories and memories are subjected to time and constant retelling, the narratives become questionable, bordering the line between fact and fiction while remaining cloaked in the convincingly familiar.
