We are Hard Workers 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. We are Hard Workers 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.
