Ciriza is, both, a multidisciplinary artist and birth doula.  Her work is focused in the realms of dreams, surreal symbolism, deconstructing mythology and ancestry, animism, elemental forces, and alchemical practices of nature reverence.  Her works are explorations of various states of fluidity, transmutation, and the slippery, elusive, anomalistic spaces materializing in tactile, visceral form. Ultimately, the result is otherworldliness, and a connection to the infinite, existing outside of time… though very rooted in earth.  It is a space where phantasmagoria becomes tangible, familiar, and  feral. Her performances are a distillation of raw energy in ritualistic catharsis: A theater of the primordial. The body as exploration of the fragile threshold between “being” and “not being”. Her hope is to offer a kind of abstract medicine through sensual form.  Her instruments are performance, film/ video, sculpture/ installation, sound, and drawing.  Ciriza has shown work in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Oaxaca, and traveling exhibitions throughout the U.S.
