Amanda Cavazos Weems and Gabe Torres Rodriguez formed the Art Industrial Complex in 2020. The pair uses their multidisciplinary art practice to bring the viewer into an alternate universe through portals painted, printed, and environmental – or the portals function as a lens to view the destructive tendencies of our own unequal society. Amanda draws from her work as a labor and community organizer to critique the systems of oppression that bind us all; Gabe uses his background as a scientist to fuel his drive to experiment with new forms and techniques. Their collaboration produces work with minuscule details, visceral texture, and visions of fire, water, and the infinite.
