Mi Madre – work in progress June 2016


My mother had a stroke. When it happened, I grabbed this book and started pouring ink on it -on all the pages. And the edges and filling the pages with the colors black and orange

After a few days I took my pen and started drawing lines to contain the ink poured inside which is what my mother’s brain was doing to the damaged sections of her mind.  I started cutting sections out. I started filling parts in. 

My mother’s brain must learn new pathways and go around the dead and unusable sections of her mind and it seems that I’m dealing with her tragedy by creating “mi Madre stroked.”
