Contextualizing himself as a “cultural worker,” Oropeza uses the broadness of this term to encompass his work as an artist, curator, gallery co-owner, and museum employee, while simultaneously honoring the visible and invisible labor that is required of these endeavors. This emphasis is poetically expressed in Oropeza’s recent series of paintings and murals, Whatever the Work May Be, which lovingly depicts tools and materials associated with laborers, subtly calling attention to their pivotal role within the cultural ecosystem.
