RF. Alvarez's newest series, Archivo, draws from Greek and Roman influences as well as pre-Columbian imagery to create works that prefigure a kind of future artifact. We go behind the scenes at his Austin, Texas studio to take a first look.

I'm interested in the notion of artifact-creation: mapping or documenting experiences, recycling relics to carve out new meaning; the relationship between the object and the individual. Lately, I've been taking a look at how these objects can come to shape identities and how they reflect an individual's relationship to a heritage.
