Oil on wood panel, 16’’ X 12’’ inch, 2021.

Painted in the summer before the start of my MFA -- A few months earlier, my home country, Honduras was hit by two hurricanes (Eta and Iota), causing a devastating flood in parts of Central America. The small red house is the roof of a structure in my uncle's farm. A wall structure is built as if to protect it from further flooding that overtakes the surrounding landscape (this outer landscape is more north american rather than Honduran). In the sky is an iceberg replacing the clouds, as a nod towards climate change and the rising sea level.
