AON COSMOS 2017-2023

The work Invokes the time after the passage of a devastating storm (María, in 2017), recently I have steered toward mixing materials found in the island from nature to man-made. This sculptural intervention made out of unfired red clay taken from the Gurabo River near my home on a roble tree is part trauma cleansing ritual and artistic manifestation guided by an urgency to create a self-sustaining practice.  The work is dedicated to my grandmother, Pilar, who died in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria and in whose house it was created.

Post Hurricane Maria my works have steered toward mixing of materials found in the island from nature to the man mand: spoiled tropical fruits, debris from storms, cement, dirt and found clay as botanical pigments while exploring themes of healing storms traumas, fashion and death rituals that explore the intersection of pop culture and ancestral histories.
