Nuñez’s practice concentrates on the amalgamation of pop culture and personal image hoarding— ranging from appropriated images from vintage magazines to comic books—with explosions of color, texture, and sheen. Bursting with iridescent pigments, pastel chalk, glitter, confetti, pompoms, candy, and banana peels, Nuñez’s compositions become immersive environments that play on memory, erosion, overindulgence, disorientation, humor, vanity, narcissism, and opulence. Integral to her creative process is music; whether it be through source imagery or visual inspiration by way of audio stimulation. – VoyageMIA Interview
