La Mujer Series was created to honor and consider the position of power Frida Kalo and The Lady of Guadalupe hold in Mexican culture.  In the United States we refer to the most powerful man in any cultural as “The Man”.  In an incredible gender development…I am suggesting that Mexico has “The Lady”.  I am just not sure which one is “The Lady” of  Mexico. What do you think?

Appearing at MEZGALERIA Opening: February 13th, 2016 Zihuatanejo, Mexico
Opening on February 2016

I create social practice eco-art from found and fabricated components in a variety of media and rescued “power objects”. I manipulate the objects to create meaning and provoke discussions and reflection on a wide variety of social topics. I have been an artist and a teacher/college professor for almost 40 years. My sculptures have been exhibited in Maine, the Virgin Islands, Miami, Mexico, Maryland, Chicago and throughout Minnesota.

I have recently created several feminist pieces which were shown at the Minneapolis Institute of Art’s MCAD , Three Wavesand in September Transcending Race: But Not The 24” Waist at the University of Minnesota’s Katherine E. Nash Gallery.

Tres Mujeres continues my reflections on feminism and specifically on women of power in Mexico. I selected the three women I see EVERYWHERE: Frida Kalo, The Lady of Guadalupe and  Snow White. Yes, Snow White.

I study culture and have taught human relations in a teacher licensure program for the last 17 years.  I am American Indian, from the Penobscot tribe in Maine. Tres Mujeres invites YOU to reflect on why these three women have such a prominent place in the popular culture of Mexico. Is Money involved? Is Power? Is Religion? Good? Concerning?
