Patria Vieja y Querida- this mixed media piece was inspired by a photographer from Italy, Tina Modotti, who took a dramatic and inspiring picture that for me captivated the struggle of Mexican women in 1928 during a strike. The rough surface in this piece signifies the importance of public mural work that has over exposed our connection to the earth and change in seasons for the masses.
Hope- May 2006, an Immigrant Rights march took place just down the street from my class in San Francisco, instead of taking my lunch I joined the march. I captured what came to be one of my favorite paintings.“Hope” on her fathers’ broken shoulders fighting for his rights.
