SE BUSCA utilizes the maximalist aesthetics of ultra-baroque to compile works that are paradoxically in conversation with both maximalism and minimalism.

The works presented confront existing definitions of labor, religious adherence to iconography, and blurs the distinctions between rasquache and domesticana. It exposes the survivalist need to be in a constant state of searching while urging viewers to utilize the privilege to pause and consider.
