Women In The Arts and Letters Offering Box Serie

This ongoing serie of  Women In The Arts and Letters Offering Box Series was directly inspired in the Women’s History Month and my fascination for Mexican Folk Art, specifically offering boxes.  This serie is intended to honor the women artists that I admired, whom have contributed to the arts and letters and to my own creative practice through out my life. Each offering box is conceived as a visual description of their lives, decorated with key personal elements that characterized their lives and now  symbolically accompany them in death.

The uterus on the other hand,  I think is one of our strongest organs. It can hold and push a baby, taking a hell of a beating during labor, then heal itself, and then repeat.  Inspired in all the above, I designed this girl with her "Love Pink & Fight Like a Girl" patch, reclaiming the color Pink as no longer a representation of delicate. We do not need to emulate "like a man" to be strong and courageous. We can be all that and while being girls and/or women, always occupying our own skin.  And now…
