A few write ups and interviews to share.

Ricardo Romo has recently been writing about artists for various blogs and presses. I want to thank Dr. Ricardo Romo for his interest in my work. He and his wife Harriett are wonderful supporters of my work as well as other Chicano/a artists. They have donated some of their collections to museums and organizations throughout the United States.

Thank you Dr. Romo for your kindness in the past as well as for this recent interview invitation.

Reclaiming Gurney St.

HACE ‘s “Reclaiming Gurney Street “Project

I  created imagery as the outline of the trains drawn from memory. Using the suggestion of the trains as a linear sculpture to  reveal the background that shows the transformation of the urban area with plants and foliage in the future, but always the big sky around it.

The artwork is a metal sculptures in steel with a finish that reflects light when hit by sun. I have invited David Acosta to create poems with the community as a collaboration. The art pieces was installed along the fence installed by the Conrail line.  I made the work to honor those that live in the area by the trains and those that have passed away while living in the opioid encampment under the bridges and around the tracks of this area on Gurney St..  With the collaboration of David Acosta’s poetry workshops with the seniors and area youths we made art that memorializes those who passed away and offer strength to reclaim Gurney for a brighter  trail to the future.

Casca-tren3

Cascarones, trains, philanthropy. Proceeds go to Cascarones Fund.
Cascatren 3 is a hybrid of my work for over 20 years. I wanted to combine the egg shape that I work on with art & philanthropy, and narrative of the trains in my life.
