Description

Stories are made to entertain us and embed a deeper message in our minds. They draw from past events in history in order to create a conscience for the future. I've always been interested in stories that have a morbid sense to them. Growing up in Latin America I've always had a sense of magical realism, this is used a lot in literature. The stories that I know have always had a darker undertone. I tend to go for a more humorous style in order for the pieces to be inviting and interesting. I make the pieces humorous because it makes it easier for people to talk about heavier subjects. The heavier subjects being the morals of the stories, that sometimes carry contemporary meanings. With the work Lo Que El Viento Dejo (What The Wind Left) I strive to create a body of work that is humorous yet it is informative. The hurricane that hit Puerto Rico in October of 2017 created a lot of damage to the infrastructure. By creating this line of brooches I intend to keep the socio-political situation that has stricken the island in the minds of the international public.
