My thesis is on the Rothko Chapel in Houston, Texas. More specifically, I am interested in the six “alternate chapel paintings,” currently on display next door at the Menil Collection, which were included with the original commission but never installed. My thesis will explore the possibilities that these “extras” might hold for the Rothko Chapel space.

I’m interested in the subject of mestizaje in colonial visual culture, namely¬† how public space is affected by religious and other dominant structures, and how this develops meaning over time for Latino communities.
