Emerging artist Christy Amezcua, is a native of Compton, trained in multidisciplinary arts, with a focus in painting and ceramics. In her practice, Amezcua strives to give voice to the experiences of women. She creates work that provides insight into women’s rights, the objectification of the female form, women’s body image issues, and issues of social injustice.
Amezcua is committed to upholding a feminist dialogue in her work, exploring inequalities due to gender and sex, specifically examining the social construct of gender and the role of women in a patriarchal world.
At CSUDH, Amezcua’s work has been archived in the Donald R. & Beverly J. Gerth Archives and Special Collections. She has been honored locally with Congressional Recognition by California’s 44th District Congresswoman, Nannette Diaz Barragan, and her work has been exhibited internationally at Kobe University in Japan.
