"There were the very real memories of my childhood: how my grandmother had introduced me to death. These memories impact the experience of the present: beloved friends dying of AIDS. I felt the need to express not only the topical, the solid and actual, but also the 'quicksilver', non-solid moments which could not be made completely concrete but were more memory, dream and myth. I realized that my culture was about both types of moments."
Artist Statement, published in Nueva Luz Volume 4:2, 1994
