Title: La Pared
Medium: Hand painting, shibori, and thiox tachniques on rayon
Inspired by the Japanese Henro(pilgrimage jacket) this piece is a visual collection of one's journey to awakening. The Japanese Henro jacket is experienced differently on the inside and outside; the outside has cultural associations that stands for purity while the inside is layered with imagery that symbolize awakening.
The specific imagery(text, graves, telephone lines, etc.) used is drawn from my memories; memories that mark a metaphorical journey of transformation. The repetitive layering of imagery does not allow the viewer to separate each component(layer) of the print, but acts as a lens in which to experience the inside of the garment.
