Meet the Artist!
Lissy Mineo-Gonzalez is a Dominican-born interdisciplinary artist inspired by the juxtaposition between urbanization and the natural world. Her relationship to this friction stems from the disparate environments occupied by herself, her family, and her ancestors. Her themes explore the spectrum of eco-feminism, relationships between humans and non-human animals and plants, extinction, impermanence, and the intangibility of human consciousness.

In 2020, Lissy was chosen to be an artist in residence at AlterWork Studios in partnership with Back to the Lab NYC. In 2021, Lissy exhibited her work at AlterWork Studios in Queens, NY, and Gallery Petite in Brooklyn, NY. Her work is featured in En Foco’s online Apartment Gallery Series exhibition, Under Our Feet As Above Our Heads.
