The Bleeding Border

Border text around the painting reads as follows: 

Illusion and deception. One door opens, another one closes before their eyes. In the silence of the night, "mojaditos" crying as they cross the line. The "coyote" is on the run. They don't understand why.

Dream and reality is their wonderland in disguise. Someone's children, anonymous shadows to the rest of us. Thousands of unspoken and ignored inconveniences. One bleeding border, one more night.

This installation raises awareness and gives voice to the thousands of unknown children that have lost their lives trying to cross the US/Mexican border.
