(acrylic paintings on board)

 

This series is about learning Spanish, an ongoing project arising from living in a Spanish-speaking community.  The shaped wall pieces are like a crazy, cockeyed dictionary made up of out-of-date pictures of work life. Mexican comic books are the basis of a related series.  In this way, I hope to represent the perplexities of English speakers and hablantes de español viewing each other across a cultural gap.
