A visual artist, Mercedes Teixido works in the area of abstract watercolor drawings, improvisational drawing, letter writing and site-specific works. She performs with her writing machine modeled after Thomas Jefferson’s polygraph, a device that allowed him to write letters in duplicate. This fall she will be performing at the Emerge Arts Fair in Washington, DC and at the Black Mountain College Conference in Asheville, North Carolina. She will also speak at Amherst College at a conference on Improvisation in the liberal arts where her interest in bringing experimental art practices to Pomona students in her courses will be discussed.
