Wednesday, March 21, 2018

THE RAMPAGE (FRESNO CITY COLLEGE) -- Sorondo was the first in her family to go to college. She attended San Francisco State, and received her bachelor’s degree in Anthropology. She approaches her art through an anthropological perspective, her practice is centered on being still.

“You just sit and think. ‘Who am I?’ ‘What do I want to put out there?’ ‘What do I want other people to feel’, or ‘how do I get other people to feel what I feel?’” she said.

Her work intertwines traditional Mexican healing practices with contemporary art, a result of her interest in flower medicine.
