Cecilix Marrero

Puerto Rico

Ceci.lix_Arte is about humanizing/normalizing intersectional identity and mental health while interrogating human rights abuses. 

I am a Queer Puerto Rican artist, activist, student, and former pro athlete currently living between Seattle, WA USA and Puerto Rico. I have been using art as a medium to capture and contextualize, as an adult, complex trauma from childhood and diagnosis of Complex PTSD. It has been a difficult process to say the least, but finding information about this diagnosis has increasingly become more available. Painting is a segway to collectivizing what has felt stolen and reclaiming it through my abstract work finding deep in myself the endless fight for it. Much of my recent work is driven by an uproot of emotions and memories difficult to process about my childhood trauma while growing up in rural Georgia USA as well as deep depression and lingering suicidal ideation. After the increasing social-political upheaval in Puerto Rico began to surface, so did my need for taking control of my internal experiences. I really had no other choice. It was imperative for me to access this outlet as it helps me to ground all other artistic mediums I use, my body, activism, education, writing, and film. 

I am an artist in that I am a mover first and foremost. I release or express myself with my body through movement. After retiring from pro soccer, I wasn't sure what avenue to choose that would honor all of my expressions from joy to rage. I had used this medium before, but for my activist work for other causes. I needed this as an imperative in order for me to reconnect with the world again, which became my own language of understanding myself in this critical stage in my life so that I can continue with where we all are in this world together.
