Narrated by Yerika Salas-Dominguez
Plague Blossom, 2020
9 x 12″ in
A two layered piece that brings two completely different elements together. Some lively pink flowers that are comforting vs a modern plague doctor that is out of place with its surroundings. Our surroundings would look and feel much more different during the pandemic if our masks were the same as back then.
Piensas Mucho, 2020
9 x 7″ in
A two layered piece that causes one to think hard, in order to understand. Although it’s best to not put much thought into it, just as the spanish piece translates into, “if you think about it too much you’ll complicate it more”. Advice that is always good to hear.
