AGUA Y ACEITE
WATER & OIL is an intimate reflection of the risk experienced in the Back of the Yard’s neighborhood. As we walk the streets we are reminded of the violence, the lives taken, and the families destroyed. The remnants are visible throughout, continually reminding me of those who are no longer with us but are around us. Their presence is felt in the parks, the alleys, the roads, and the walkways. Sadly, as I gaze at their belongings, I see through their eyes, I feel their pain, and I see their truth. As I pass these memorials, I feel what is happening to my people. I feel as if it happened to my family. I feel as if it can happen to me.
