“Faros de Esperanza” (Light Houses of Faith) 2017
Another work inspired by vision and Hope. Before modern navigation, sailors depended on reliable signs to recon their way to shore. Light houses were one of the first constructions erected by Spaniards in the coastlines throughout the Caribbean. Cross Atlantic navigation was risky and dangerous. At night they were guided by the stars and the moon often facing life threatening challenges such as thick cloudy skies, storms, coral reef areas.. With no GPS, they relied on the vigilant watching from the top of the mast. Hoping and Praying on hope was hearing the vigilant’s call: “TIERRA” (Land) when seeing for the first time the light coming out of the Light Houses of Faith.
