"The Bone Series" began as an exploration of anatomical drawings which then evolved into actual bones being used as the primary medium. Finding inspiration in her mexican heritage, the series delves into themes seen in that of Dias de las Muertos. Each piece combines elements of geometric shapes, forms and color palettes found in nature in order to illustrate concepts of life and death simultaneously. Imagery of marigolds (the flower of the dead in Mexican culture), dahlias (the official flower of Mexico) and others are used to emphasize this. The series aims to serve as a reminder of the density of life we are constantly surrounded by as well as its cyclical nature on both macro and micro levels.
Our relationship with death is an important part of her story.
All works consist of ethically found bones within their respective natural environments, none have been purchased or used at the expense of their owner. Once found, the bones are then cleaned, sterilized and primed. Each piece is one of a kind, mounted safely inside a floater framed and embellished with gold leaf and oil paints.
