A Young Vendor with Callas - Una Joven Vendedora con Calas
Sunday Markets is a series of figurative paintings inspired by the lives of Latin American women vendors and artisans. Indigenous women carrying heavy baskets of fresh fruits and flowers invite the viewer to explore busy, bustling, colourful, one-of-a-kind booths. Sunday Markets is a tribute to a long-lasting tradition of street markets in Latin America — a space to socialize as well as make ends meet. It is also a tribute to sisterhood among Latin American Indigenous women who must endure the hardships of sitting and trading their produce through long, hot days.
