Martha De la Cruz (1996) is a Dominican-United Statesian artist who through video, installations and sculpture investigates issues of raza, decolonization, identity and hierarchical power. Her practice is guided by her collective experiences of a recent US transplant, her memories of the past and her inherited colonialist wounds.
She received her BFA in Sculpture and Extended Media from University of South Florida in December 2020. Her work has been part of many exhibitions in spaces across the US including the Carolyn M. Wilson Gallery; Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center; CoCurate 224, at the Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art at St.Petersburg College; BigArts Sanibel.
In June 2021, she was awarded the City of Fort Myers Arts & Culture Grant in Fort Myers, FL in recognition of her work in the progression of the arts and culture of the city.
