Thank you Jill Deupi and Carol Damian for the invitation to participate at the Lowe Art Museum Evening of Art Palette Project. I was blown away at the ingenuity of the 55 Miami participants who transformed a simple wood palette into amazing works of art. A marvelous event indeed!
I presented "In her Mind's Eye", palette knife oil/acrylic on paper, wood and metal, 16" x 12" x 7/8".
All my abstract work speak of the Panama of my childhood, its people and exuberant nature. They tell of the amazing adventures of a 5 years old allowed to run around completely free and unsupervised. Chasing butterflies, laying in the grass looking at the clouds and birds passing by...
This time I added worker tools to honor the laborers that sacrificed so much in the nearby sugar cane fields that surrounded our home town of Aguadulce.
In her latest body of work, Chinese Panamanian artist MaiYap responds to racism against Asian Americans and the attacks many have suffered. Inspired by Chinese landscape art, her beautiful colorful pieces feature highly textured lily pads floating on top of the water in all shapes and sizes, painted in oils and using only palette knives.
I was interviewed by Blanca Herrera for her show "Gente Que Inspira" for
