Yasmin Hernandez Art
Lolita Luna, 2019
Archival Giclee Print on Velvet Fine Art Paper
9 x 12 inches
This limited edition, archival giclee print on Velvet Fine Art paper is 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. Lolita Lebrón was a political prisoner of the US for 25 years for fighting for the independence of Puerto Rico. She continued her commitment to this cause until her passing in 2010.
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.
Yasmin Hernandez is a Brooklyn-born and raised artist whose work is centered on rematriation and liberation themes. She moved to her ancestral homeland of Borikén in 2014, where she is still based. CucubaNación is her artspace in Mayaguez.
