About the Artist 

MARYROSE COBARRUBIAS MENDOZA (b. 1966, Manila, Philippines) uses craft, scale, perspective, and replication to recast the familiar in drawings, sculpture and installations. Her work centers on the exploration of identity, history and environment complicated by underrepresentation, marginalization, extraction and cultural amnesia, particularly among the diasporic.  

Her work has been exhibited at the Orange County Museum of Art, USC’s Pacific Asia Museum, Los Angeles’ Municipal Art Gallery, and others. She has received a Guggenheim Fellowship, a COLA Individual Artist Fellowship, and the NY Art Matters Fellowship, and has served as artist-in-residence at Yaddo Artist Residency, Joshua Tree Highlands Residency, and Art Space Yosuga in Kyoto, Japan.
