"These works are prayers in visual form. During times of grief, suffering, contemplation, hope, and peace, I see the colorful birds of El Salvador’s folk art as symbols of the soul and a continual source of inspiration. The spirit of the paloma in this work represents the soul of my child, my self, my people, and my ancestors." - Rebekah Crisanta, Artist

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Story

 

 Each new day is a blank page in the diary of your life.

The secret of success is turning that diary into the best story you possibly can.

“Stories shape experiences and experiences shape stories. From  painful life events, such as the loss of a child, to negotiating issues of colonization, religion, and womanhood, Crisanta’s journey through grief  illuminates the resiliency of the human spirit. Using mixed materials, intense colors, and varied textures, Crisanta’s stories are rooted in herstory of El Salvador, spirituality of the diaspora, and indigenous practices. Ultimately, Crisanta reminds us that art is a way to make sense of our experiences and heal the stories we carry.”       - Jessica Lopez Lyman, Curator
