The work created for this exhibition examines diaspora through the repurposing of common everyday objects. Railings, cement cinderblocks, hand crafted macramé, repurposed shattered tempered automobile glass, iconic floral and vegetation native to the Caribbean are reimagined into paintings, sculptures, a floating garden and tactile celestial works. Tropicalizia is a reflection on culture, social practice, community and identity.
