The Sun in My Eyes, The Panic Inside
mixed media on wood | 2016
This work was made in collaboration with a friend from Ciudad Juárez. He is a musician and wrote a song called El Diario de Juarez. The lyrics of this song and our conversations through text messaging were a reference for the imagery and concepts dealing with our situation on the border. He spoke about trying to live life and having normal everyday experiences while so many things are happening around him in is community. We also spoke of the U.S. involvement in the current state of violence and corruption in Mexico.
