Jesus Treviño’s work is developed from personal experience and rooted in his upbringing on the U.S./Mexican borderlands and addresses the impact of loss due to an unnatural boundary. He’s interested in making paintings that mirror land's capacity to hold traces of unresolved tensions when thinking about histories of erasure, movement, displacement of people, and how that shapes his identity, which continues to shift, fade, and reassemble.
