By using the word "Guindalejo" (Puertorrican word that means fringe) and the conceptualization of it as a symbol of layers of oppression and influences, I create a sculptural paintings that reflects the complexities of where I come from. Through the process of collecting discarded fabrics from a mass production factories and hanging up them in canvases, I set up a reflection of the complexities of the multicultural layers brought to Puerto Rico by the imposition and adoption of policies and attitudes as a colony that has not been able to dictate its own landscape.
