El Sol En Mi Piel

El Sol en Mi Piel (The Sun in my Skin), is a personal painting project that highlights the beauty and energy in brown skin. At the same time, I am recording my family history since most of our history is hard to trace further than 4 generations. In doing so, I am also exploring the story of our melanin and its relationship with the sun. This is a way to start documenting our presence in this world while also highlighting the importance of their contribution as farmworkers who feed the world.
