Letting Go


      Madres Altares installation detail

Letting go is the hardest thing to do. 

I cling to difficult memories as if I couldn't survive without them.
Crisis and angst were the staples of my upbringing. I often can only feel normal if there is a crisis 
at hand. I am working on a series of images for Las Gallas' upcoming exhibition at the 
Taller Puertorriqueno entitled  "Lo Que Aparece y Desaparece". 
I say this is my last works dedicated to my mother , but I can only hope that I will be able to let her go.
Let her and my memory of her be at Peace. To let go of the turmoil that fuels this creative process around my relationship with my mother who has been gone for almost 8 years. My relationship with her and other family members who disappear and appear in my life.

I am coming to realize that this is an almost impossible task. 
Here a e some pics of works in progress:
