Mastermind 2012 Honorable Mention: Charo Oquet
According to her biography, Charo Oquet "is an interdisciplinary artist who's known for her dynamic installations." But "dynamic installations" doesn't even begin to describe her work. Her installations are far beyond dynamic -- they're out of another world, but ironically enough, Oquet creates them to incorporate idioms that we see everyday.
Oquet bases her work on popular Afro-Caribbean religions, and having been exhibited in the U.S., Europe and the Caribbean, it's no stretch to say she's doing something right. Permanent exhibitions house some of her works in Spain, New Zealand, and Dominican Republic.
So, we can go dumpster diving with her and create a piece for the New Times office.
