Chapter 2: Deluge

Chapter 2 expands the focus of Mestiza Dos Veces to approach Colonialism with an intersectional lens. The works are large scale, and feature imagery that is deeply feminine in contrast to the archetypal, abstract, masculine history paintings. The work threads itself into the dominant, masculine art structures in order to bring light to the often-overlooked feminine cannon of images. Depictions of lace blend with natural elements, linking the works of women with landscape. The imposition of the masculine onto the feminine is explored through these depictions of and the violence imposed on it, treating patriarchy as a Colonial force.
