The inspiration for these repurposed, mix media constructions is layered in a spill of experiences I have encountered throughout my life.

 

The solitary walks and experiences in the desert with the animals and spirits in southern Arizona near the US-Mexico wall are present in these works.

 

A dance performance I witnessed when I was an undergraduate art student at the University of Texas at Austin at the Bass Concert Hall by the Ballet Folklórico de México directed by the internationally acclaimed Amalia Hernández in 1992 is present in these works.

 

The last chapter of Journey to Ixtlán by Carlos Castañeda is present in these new works, where Don Juan explains to Carlos;

 

“Everyone Genaro finds on his way to Ixtlán is only an ephemeral being.”  “Take you for instance.”  “You are a phantom.”  Journey to Ixtlán by Carlos Castañeda 1972
