I am a junior at Parker School. I have most recently become interested in photography and mixed media. Before that I was also passionate in pottery. I like to think that my art work not only represents me, but also a piece of my ancestors who also made their own forms of art before me, to show their heritage and culture.
My art gives a snapshot of history suffering that indigenous people have gone through. On the left side, it shows the remnants of the beauty that was once the land of many indigenous tribes. The people within the horse show the sufferings that occurred because of people such as conquistadors, who brought animals like horses over. The right side shows modern life and the fact that many cities are built over the lost lands of indigenous people. I believe that my art is going to help promote awareness about the struggles that indigenous people have faced and continue to face.
