About José Ibarra Rizo: Depth Within A Gaze

José Ibarra Rizo (b. 1992) is a Mexican-American multidisciplinary artist living and working in Atlanta, GA. His work primarily focuses on identity and is currently exploring the migrant experience in the American South. Primarily working with photography, Jose also utilizes drawing, painting, and sculpture in his creative process to convey genuine human narratives. His work lives in the permanent collection of the High Museum of Art, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Art, and his clients include Rolling Stone, TIME Magazine, and The New York Times. 

 

Depth Within A Gaze continues the exploration of themes that have been at the heart of José Ibarra Rizo's practice since 2021, notably the migrant experience in the American South. This latest body of work dives deeper into these narratives, embracing themes of labor, land, and the ever-evolving South.
