dc.description.abstractCommonly associated with the art of tattooing, Dr. Lakra (Jerónimo López Ramírez) has also worked in the “fine” arts for over twenty years. Drawing on various levels of pornography, popular-culture, ethnography, and found objects from numerous countries around the world along with tattoo culture, Lakra uses sexualized, subversive, and grotesque bodies to explore base human instincts, fusing these elements together in order to express the complexities of identity, nationalism, and postcolonial globalization. Moreover, Lakra uses this visual material to represent rupture and hybridity – ideas inherent not only to contemporary Mexican subjectivity, but to all human subjects in cosmopolitan societies that maintain imperialistic structures similar to historically colonized nations. Isolating works on paper that make use of found images of vintage female pin-ups, my thesis will address imagery and themes operative within Lakra’s entire oeuvre, while also considering their relationship to the issue of identity in the face of globalization.
