Message From the Artist
In the midst of our current sociopolitical environment it can become very easy to get lost in all the commotion, the fake news, the xenophobia, the hegemony, and the political tensions as a whole. However, we as a community have proven ourselves many times over in history to be survivors, to be seekers of justice, to fight for our rights as human beings. We must not let these issues subdue us, we must flourish above all else, to come together and make change, for our future and the future of our Families. We must be resilient, like the nopal we have become all too familiar with, she grows despite the harsh winds, the pouring rain and the dry seasons. We must demonstrate growth and will like her, in order to create something which is all too beautiful to ignore in the face of ignorance.
