Mother, appropriates and reinterprets a historical icon of Western art, the portrait of Franciulla Petrus Christus. That ancient face recreated in the present speaks of how each generation changes over the years and how we understand things as we grow and evolve. The hanging mask hides many things but also reveals others, skin and bones, family jewels and chains. Under her protection, small mushrooms grow on the floor surrounded by the darkness of the room. She encourages us to reflect that nothing is what it seems and that no one escapes the transformation that occurs over time. Beauty, art and creation are recognized in decomposition, in what is devalued or discarded and also in family mysteries such as jewels or rotten fruit where fungi grow that form a mantle on the ground.
