The process of learning and constructing self-identity through the latent memories of youth serves as catalyst for Christian Curiel’s (1977, Ponce/Puerto Rico) creative world.


Storytelling in Curiel’s paintings, drawings and sculptures works like memory functions—non-sequential and fragmented, constructed and revealing with time. Rather than a linear narrative, he depict moments of activity or curiosity in which the viewer begins with what is given, questioning and developing different stories depending on personal experience. At first glance, images of the normal and everyday appear simple and innocent, yet upon looking closer, the tragic and anomalous begin to emerge.
