On Going Series Since 2020

This is an on-going collage series that began after my visit to Mexico in 2021. In part an escape from the US, and need to feel surrounded by familiar places and friendly faces even though I knew no one and I had never been there. I wanted to sit in the parks where my grandmother strolled. I wanted to walk by the house my father and aunt lived in the first years of their lives. Like a scientist or anthropologist, I allowed myself to take in everything fully, but promised myself not to touch, interrupt or question the order of things. 

These collages are love letters to my Mexican heritage and the Latinx diaspora. The works of art are the field notes and stories of how my roots do not allow me to just sit and watch with my arms crossed. Instead, they compel me and fill me with purpose to go beyond nostalgia and contribute to a world in dire need of love and light. These paper roots that I have found now form a vital part in everything I do, have done and will ever do. 

For the past few years I have brought the Paper Roots collages in a calendar that celebrates notable dates and people in the Latin@ community.
