Jel Suarez (b. 1990, Philippines) is a self-taught artist who sees herself primarily as a hunter, gatherer, de/constructor, and arranger. Built on a practice of collage-making, her work is openly informed by the physicality of things. Being composed of natural objects, such as paper, stones, and other salvaged materials, Suarez’s works release objects from their old lives and engage them in a process of ‘becoming’. Her work doubles as cartography: an unconscious mapping of images and materials into differing landscapes that allows viewers to engage in non-linear interaction with the work.
