SUBYUGACION TAINO

"They should be good and intelligent servants, for I see that they say very quickly everything that is said to them; and I believe they would become Christians very easily, for it seemed to me that they had no religion” Christopher Columbus Journal Entry 1492

 

Honoring the native peoples of Puerto Rico. This series uses gold, elaborate jewelry, luxurious fabric and patterns to juxtapose the natural elements, face paint, feather adornments and primal Taino symbols. This is a conversation about compassion & gratitude for nature versus ego and greed. Contrasting themes such as indigenous culture and a more colonized existences, native spirituality compared to an organized religion and love vs. power.
