Pinches Rinches looks at the suppressed historical events surrounding the executions and lynchings of Mexicans and Tejanos by Texas Rangers along the Texas Borderlands, post-Texas Revolution. This series was informed by research from both historical accounts of these atrocities, as well as passed-down legends and family histories.
Pinches Rinches made its debut at the Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts (San Francisco), has gone on to show at Galeria de la Raza (San Francisco), Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts (San Francisco), the Asian Resource Gallery (Oakland), the Mexic-Arte Museum (Austin), and the Smithsonian Affiliate museum of the Sam and Alfreda Maloof Foundation for the Arts and Crafts (with Craft in America) (Alta Loma, CA). The series was most recently on view for NATALIA ANCISO: They Try to Bury Us at the Joseph Gross Gallery of the University of Arizona (Tucson).
Pinches Rinches was referenced by Dr. Iain Robertson, Head of Art Business Studies at Sotheby's Institute of Art, in his book, New Art, New Markets.
