Hand-painted CucubaNación Bag 2022
Acrylic on black bag
CucubaNación (Cucubano + nation or nation of light) started as a 2018 painting series following the post-Hurricane María darkness. In 2022 it expanded into my store-front art space in Mayaguez. Originally inspired by the bioluminescent waters of Vieques, this hand-painted bag envisions the archipelago of Puerto Rico in its green light and the aqua light of our three main bioluminescenct bays in Vieques, Fajardo and Lajas.
Yasmin Hernandez is a Brooklyn-born and raised artist whose work is centered on liberation and rematriation. She moved to her ancestral homeland of Borikén in 2014, where she is still based.
