Si Se Puede (Yes We Can) is a thesis exhibition that displays my use of art in contemporary culture coming from a background rooted in Curandera practices and Catholic Santeria and the passing on of stories and traditions. A variety of materials are at play in support of formal elements of drawing, painting, as well as three-dimensional objects. In the work, questions of tradition, collecting, journaling and using art as spiritual healing coexist. Text and visual imagery support the idea that my work is a record of my experiences and beliefs.--Abstract.
