Eres Mi Flor - Recycled T-Shirt
Words from the artist: Love is a recurring theme in my recent body of work. Love of nature, love of spirit and love of self. With the introduction of this work in the sequencing of the show, a shift occurs from the external exploration of self to internal exploration of self. This work is an ode to love and support. It highlights a moment where a flower, acting as a self portrait is hot, depleted and thirsty. A moment where the external environment isn’t conducive to the growth of the flower. Where the flower’s external discomfort is seeping in. A moment where a cry for help is expressed. At times I often feel overwhelmed emotionally and spiritually, thus leading to a sense of tiredness and thirst. Thirst for something cool, for peace, like water. This work’s title, Eres Mi Flor mimics a phrase my partner often says to me in moments like this. Eres Mi Flor, You are my flower, right before he proceeds to hand me a cup of water. His loving phrase and subsequent action quenching my thirst and provided me with peace and coolness.
