Description

The "Foreclosure Series" are mixed media drawings on maps I started as daily exercises in mid-March when I moved my studio into my bedroom for lockdown. I had an atlas of maps from Jacksonville, FL and figured it was a perfect format for fun, creative daily drawings on maps. I didn't think too much about them at first, and it wasn't until later in April that I realized the meaning and impact these pieces actually had. Our home in Miami foreclosed back in 2008 when the financial crisis hit, and we were displaced to Jacksonville- the only place my father could find work. I think of this foreclosure as a form of displacement that my family experienced, our second displacement, the first being from Ecuador to the US. I'm thinking about the relationships between that experience, my larger immigrant experience in the US and the kind of dislocation we're experiencing now during Covid-19 times. The series ended up taking a much larger significance, and is ongoing. All works sold unframed.
