Bieké: 2007-Present
Installations related to my on-going work on Vieques and its continued struggle for peace and justice after 60 years of US Navy weapons practice and maneuvers.

Channeling my upbringing, particularly the spiritual practices I was raised with, my explorations with installations having always centered on altar-making.

Ponce Massacre installation

Oil/ collage on canvas, 51" x 34", fabric, flowers, candle. This first installation of The Ponce Massacre was part of my BFA Thesis. The Ponce Massacre took place in Ponce, Puerto Rico, my parents' hometown. The US colonial police chief revoked a parade permit on Palm Sunday commemorating the abolition of slavery. When the people marched anyway, the police opened fire on them killed 21 and wounding around 200.
