Artist Statement:

Nine years ago, I noticed something
different. It was right after you
died, Mom.
My face and my eyes were whispering words I could not understand.
All I could see were sad lines. My chest was feeling an urgent necessity for B E I N G despite the heavy weight of void.
The cruelty of what happened to you pushed me to pause, to witness one
woman’s fight to another.
In search of you and the sisterhood which were healing, I started following tracks of resilience.
I saw all the irrelevant women in me I carried for years and all the other ones I never allowed to breathe.
Peel off those layers. They`re
not mine.
But what about you, sister? How did you survive?
We realized too late that the barriers, borders, and walls are not the languages, cultures, and races.
They are Our hearts, my friend.
I’m inviting everyone for cheesecake, including those who draw red lines and consider our wrinkles, accents,
and resistances exotic stories of
What are you so afraid of?
Can I touch your face?
I crave human connection.
And I’m not sorry my love letters
are bitter.
