Artists Statement: The sights and sounds of old town Havana - sprawling in the streets below us - intrigued me. We were sitting on the balcony of our guesthouse on this hot night. From this vantage point, I observed random angular shapes of old buildings, windows, and a well-traveled cobble road. A dim light was visible from several windows, others were dark. It looked to me as though several families, possibly from adjacent apartments, were joining together in a single lit space for cooking and eating. Listening to their voices and music keyed me into the possibility of multicultural families sharing limited space, out of necessity. The scene is an example of the situation Cubans have lived in for decades. They have developed an ability to adapt to limited resources, such as a lack of housing, electricity, and food. In this abstract piece I have combined light, dark playful brights, and a painted Caribbean sky in fabric to tell the story of life in Havana.
