Buscando Agua Despues de Maria. Title Translation: “Fetching Water After Maria [Hurricane]”


This first piece I use mixed media, including fabric hardner, paper, aluminum foil, and egg carton to unify them and depict a view of thousands of Puerto Ricans, including my family, after the devastation of Hurricane Maria in September 2017 left them to often seek dangerous sources of water. Also, is the dichotomy of a Puerto Rican in a distinguished “Quayabera” getting dirty on his knees while holding his Puerto Rican flag close. I use acrylic on egg carton to highlight fragments of the native “flamboyán” flower tree and found objects for the common blue jug Puerto Ricans used to collect and haul the water.
