STATEMENT- Pablo Francisco Matute (b.1999) is a visual artist based in South Florida. His practice revolves around recontextualizing materials and memories from his surroundings to create works that reflect the tropical environment and multicultural community of Caribbean and South American culture present in South Florida. As a Latino-American, Matute uses his work as a way of responding to his dual culture based on personal experiences, embracing both aspects of his identity and showing a dichotomous relationship that many second-generation people share through the images and references made in his work. Inspired by his community, Pablo works with natural materials that bridge multiple regions that makeup South Florida, marrying his interest in traditional drawing with found materials.
