“The emotions of restless longing, the feeling of not belonging, the desire for something more, inspire and drive her art practice.”
‘I’m not really an artist,’ that’s what Ashley Irizarry, who goes by the name ‘Hiraeth’, tells herself each time she returns to her “studio” (a corner of the living room) to create something that makes sense of her internal chaos of emotions and thoughts. Chaos, color, and story. That’s what Ashley aims to create in in her art. There’s an internal harmony to her work that tells a story in between the claustrophobia of color crowding the senses.
