Archundia uses figurative painting to develop inquisitions far beyond the easy recognition of images. Her body of research over the past 10 years has focused on the inquiry of space. Archundia’s experiences living abroad infused her work on spatial inquiry with issues of identity in a global context. Identity and space now form the conceptual axis of Archundia’s current projects.
