Abstract/Artist's Statement

What is the domincan woman made of? Sugar, spice, something else? The religious identities of Nuestra Senora de la Altagracia and Santa Marta la Dominadora show that she is no one and every one at the same time. The figures investigated throughout this project emerged from within the creative imaginations of the Indigenous people of the islands of the Caribbean, the European Settlers and the African communities. Within them there already existed manifestations of womanhood, these culminated and informed a richly complex religious culture in the Dominican Republic.
