Ropa Arco Iris

Ropa Arco Iris is part of a series of artwork inspired by the Huipil, a traditional women’s garment from Chiapas and Guatemala. The indigenous women from these regions are famous for their hand weaving perfected over thousands of years. There are vertical stripes in the piece that echo the woven construction of huipils. The colors of this piece reflect the colors of the rainbow, thus its name. This wall relief is hand screen-printed on recycled plastic, sewing, wrapping, waxed linen thread. I have used women’s clothing as a source of inspiration for many years. Indigenous people are at risk due to habitat fragmentation along with birds and other species.

Medium: hand screen-printing on recycled plastic, hand and machine sewing, wrapping, waxed linen thread
