Haydee Alonso working in her studio

Haydee Alonso is a multidisciplinary artist based in Cd. Juárez/El Paso. She completed her MFA in Jewelry and Metal from the Royal College of Art and earned a BFA with a focus in Metals and Sculpture from the University of Texas at El Paso. 

Growing up in the border region of Mexico and the United States has led to an exploration of creative solutions for a divided space: facilitating interaction instead of laying out a line that does not allow it. 

A Border has a very definitive purpose: it separates the thing that is not us or it builds a bridge between yours and mine. The delineation in space and geographies has stimulated a body of work where two beings interact in a predesigned set of dynamics.
