Mixed Media/Techniques

Arrieta struck gold when he coined Boiseland as the title for his solo exhibition. The term, not having previously existed, acts as uncharted territory for the artist to pioneer. Boiseland takes the viewer on a journey to a parallel reality, creating an alternative representation of Boise where legends ''live together'' with the mix of experiences Arrieta encountered during his residency. It is a place where memories, stereotypes, popular culture, and history collide. Through his use of found imagery, Arrieta raises questions about the (mis)representation of cultures, and how those representations `travel’ from one part of the world to another.
