La Sangre se Hincha

When I read Walt Whitman’s words… “Within there runs blood, The same old blood! the same red-running blood! There swells and jets a heart, there all passions, desires, reachings, aspirations”… I was leveled and knew “this” is what I wanted to create. But how? And what? So I turned to my medium of choice…burlap. I can see “art” and “my visual language” through this medium. The textures and patterns are imperfect and tell a story. When I pick it up and start to work with it, the story becomes visually clear, and I work until the art is completed. Finding words for the story is sometimes difficult until I publicly display the art and people tell me what they see. I understand what I see and feel after creating this artwork, but I’m more interested in what people tell me what they see, for this art is for them, not me. I see everyone’s body in this art and I pull the viewer in with the textures, colors, and inviting form. This form is a torso, it is a universal shape, neither female nor male, it just is.
