Once Upon a Pink Moon

2022


People of marginalized identities face oppressive environments, either at home or in the world outside. Imagining new realities as a way to escape, even momentarily, toxic circumstances. This work analyzes escapism as a consequence of living under persecution. The analog images of the white walls of my home, bridge the relationship between a white canvas, the film negative, and the domestic spaces. The film was soaked in different site-specific ingredients, dried, and processed. The result are otherwordly, painterly, abstract images. Illustrating the new worlds imagined while confined in our homes. The pink moon signifies change. Its gravitational pull has deep emotional impacts. The need for change is imperative. It represents the ideal landscape place for the new world.
