Oscar Gonzalez-Diaz focuses range from identity to systems of logic and cultural perception. It is in these interests he find the concepts driving his work. His work is focused on the relation of theories within an artwork as well as relationships to content and locale. Gonzalez-Diaz's use of paper and fabrics serve as the force for locale and content meanwhile his concepts are drawn from the titles of his work and interactions viewer-object.

Born in El Paso, TX, Gonzalez-Diaz grew up on the other side of the border in Cd. Juarez, Chih. Mex. His artwork evokes the fleeting sense relationships can have in our environment and how as people we are not always able to grasp the importance of our relations within our living systems.
