Acrylic on Stretched Canvas
4ft x 3ft
This 3' x 4' stretched canvas piece is inspired by my life experience as a Black Latina and my travels to Cuba. The plants portrayed in this painting are native to the island. While my familial roots are in Mexico, Trinidad, West Africa & Curaçao, I remember going to a salsa concert in #Havana and being blown away by the number of people who looked just like me and spoke the same languages. The richness of the African diaspora permeates cultures worldwide, particularly Latino culture, and touring caves that Taino tribes once inhabited reminded me that this richness is sacred. I hope I do that magic justice.
