The book scared, astonished, and angered me to my inner most core. And awoke an intense desire to investigate my family's past with Puerto Rico's #1 Nationalist, Pedro Albizu Campos.
Having read about Don Pedro I gained respect and admiration for his passion and vision. It has taken six months for me to properly digest the information i read on the book and have come up with a plan as to how to regurgitate it Artistically.
Revisiting History is a determination to change how we understand the present. When we revisit history, time collapses; what was once present and is now past becomes vividly present once again.
(quoted from Themes of Contemporary Art: Visual art after 1980. p.135)
|Not Naydas Art but a clue|
What is significant in an artists own life is tied to larger public events. Will I be able to evoke passage of time?
Stay tuned to drawings, drafts, and explorations.
