Amarise Carreras is a photo based performance artist, utilizing photography for both documenting and observing while engaging in performative conversations. The results are images of quotidian moments and narratives that portal history, ancestry, altars and still lifes that are alive. The performative aspect is referential directly to a gentle and deeply personal connection to Amarise’s bisabuela and the Boricua womxn. This has become a focal aspect of Amarise’s investigation into Santeria.
Amarise has shown in galleries such as Candela Gallery, Photocarrefour Gallery, and will be screening photographs internationally with Isla Collectivo throughout 2019-2020.
