Political Papel Picado
2009 I began a series of tissue paper cut outs inspired by Mexican Day of the
Dead papel picado banners. I envision the banners as an ongoing series
commenting on social political issues of the day and making a contribution
to the historical record. My work draws inspiration from the Mexican
artists Rivera, Orozco, Siquieros and Posada as well as the contemporary
artists Bansky and Sigmar Polke.
