Twin sisters Sydnie and Haylie Jimenez were born in Florida and raised in rural Georgia, and both attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. While there they took an interest in the Institute’s Mesoamerican and African collections, which provided a history of figuration outside of the Greco-Roman tradition and demonstrated the rich possibilities of indigenous clay. The Jimenez sisters build upon this historical foundation with works that revel in the intimacy and vitality of community and that live very much in the present moment. Combining the aesthetics of punk and cartoon animation, they utilize traditional media in works that embody their progressive values.
