Keepsake wooden box with archival print, handpainted with acrylic paints

This small, wooden, hand-painted keepsake box includes a small archival print of my original 2019 painting of Lolita Lebrón Ya yo vi la Luna, inspired by a full moon that coincided with an anniversary of the March 1st 1954 armed protest in Washington demanding freedom for Puerto Rico.  


Black Backgrounds have been part of my creative practice since 2009 in honor of Vieques’ bioluminescent bay and that took on new meaning after living through Hurricanes Irma and Maria and their dark aftermath.
