I make sculptures, drawings, and paintings that utilize the symbol of Papel Picado as a metaphor to engage in various personal dialogues about grief: How I have felt about the self erasure of my culture required to exist within white spaces, pregnancy loss, and feelings of disenfranchisement surrounding sexual assault.
By creating Papel Picado, graphite drawings, and acrylic paintings; each material can provide a unique perspective into a subconscious reckoning between how to celebrate joy within grief.
