My most recent body of work “Se Valiente, Yo Lo He Vencido” (Be Brave, I Have Overcome It) aims to focus on how female stereotypes in La@n America (México) have been evolving and how the shift in power has produced a reorganization in society such as within my family. This is meant to be a celebration and reﬂection on the female ﬁgures that make up my family - my mother, grandmother and sister. It embraces a traditional Mexican craft, hand embroidery, as a pivotal element to the narrative involved.
The words "Se valiente, yo lo he vencido" (Be brave, I have overcome it), imply a conversation and interiorization between foremothers and a current female generation, on how they have surmounted male oppression cycles in their own lives.
The visual narrative of my practice is often concerned with exploring the relationship between us and our immediate social circle, in this case, family. I hope to apply this muse into a documentary setting, collaborating with more women from every part of the world, helping to share their stories through my own visual language.
