Ana Mendieta (1948-1985) from her "Silueata" series. "The making of my silueta in nature keeps the transition between my homeland and my new home. It is a way of reclaiming my roots and becoming one with nature. Although the culture in which I live is part of me, my roots and cultural identity are a result of my Cuban heritage." 鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍Medieta was exiled from Cuba in 1960, and relocated to an orphanage in Iowa. This traumatic experience of immigration heavily influenced her practice and this kind of trauma is happening all the time. 鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍 Just a quick note, on her spiritual connections with her silhouettes/sculptures/performances. When Mendieta carves the shape of her body into the earth, with arms raise to connect the sky and earth, her "siluetas" portray her body and earth as one, human and nature as one, life and death as one. 馃寘馃寣 #ripanamendieta #anamendieta #immigrantsmakeamericagreat

Adding some 鈿笍鈿笍鈿笍to this work "Taki" from 2016. Sometimes it feels futile to rework these blue Pacific Northwest works, I put in a lot of time and slowly built up the composition. It feels good to finish something and move on and sometimes it feels right to add something that was missing from the start. (Taki means waterfall) #correctionalfluid #pacificnorthwest #losangeles

#tbt @lilahslagerrose and i painted the old delivery truck for @mickeysplants last year. This was very fun for us to paint for this wonderful local business. We chose Monstera and Caltheas leaves, and (something else i can't identify ) for the design. If you want your truck or wall painted DM us. #monstera #indoorplants #losangeles #murals
