Sandra Mayo is an Argentinean artist and educator (Ed.M.) who lives in Lexington, Massachusetts. Enabled by her background as educator and utilizing printmaking as her main tool, Sandra has developed a unique visual language using genograms to follow and probe the emotional history of families, including trauma and human rights abuses. Her art aims to provoke profound emotional and intellectual bonds with the viewer’s mind, connecting them with current sociopolitical events.
