Devora Perez lives and works in Miami. She received her bachelor’s degree from New World School of
the Arts, and is currently an MFA candidate at Florida International University. Perez is interested in the
domestic setting and its influence on gender, race, and class in society. In her work she challenges
domesticity through the use of everyday materials such as caulk, cement, plastic, and wood, and uses
them in unconventional ways. Through formal and minimal design, Perez emphasizes color, texture, and
even the industrial material itself. While some pieces may seem fragile and light others are heavy and
dense both visually and physically. These discrepancies in weight between the works and the use of
shadows are meant to construct divisions and separate spaces.
