Cacica remix of my original 2004 portrait of Puerto Rican revolutionary Lolita Lebrón. This print has been enhanced/ hand painted to take on colors as close to the original work as possible. In this remix, white ink is used to create a design inspired by our indigenous ancestors. This painting is a reflection on the struggle and fate of women revolutionaries.
Remixes are original, mixed-media works combining prints of my previous paintings with new images, designs, text, ideas. Versus buying a simple digital print reproduction, remixes are an opportunity to collect a favorite image as a reworked, small-scale, more affordable original. Like my brother who I watched experiment with different break beat samples on turntables, I sample and experiment with previous images and new influences. Remixes are priced not necessarily by size, but by the amount of work and detail incorporated in each.
Artist Info: Yasmin Hernandez is a Brooklyn-born and raised artist who rematriated to her ancestral homeland of Borikén in 2014, where she is still based. Her work explores liberation, light and love.
