Stills from my latest film, La Madre Santísima de la Luz. It is an honor and privilege to have this work up at @bluestarart.
Each artist was invited to create a unique artwork in response to 1 of 300 years of San Antonio’s history. My assigned year was 1816. The year without a summer, the year of Frankenstein’s conception. It was a time of political turmoil and environmental strain, as The Empire on which the sun never sets was beginning to lose it’s territories and global dominance, tensions were running high between the indigenous tribes in Bexar and the Colonizers. The king of Spain, known widely as El Rey Felón, was held in contempt by the Spanish for his refusal to sign a treaty that would have granted rights to the people such as freedom of press and speech. #HistoryRepeatsItself #TiredOfThisShit #RiseUp #MakeArt #Challenge #FuckTrump @ariellunaanais
