Our Father

padre-412.jpg

6 feet by 32 inches. materials: wax(petroleum base) 13 candles, 10 wholes in the canvas, wooden structure, tints, lights, mirrors, and acetate portrait photographs, lable maker machine, label tape.

This is a process art piece, I used a label maker to pray “our father” until the canvas was completely covered. I layed a very thin layer of wax on the canvas, lit the 13 candles for 13 seconds, and then blew them out.

The number 13 represents the titles of the Colombian constitution, specifically the article referring to protection to every person in Colombian territory. There is a box like structure in the back of the canvas, that is tilted like a podium. There are dimmed lights behind the piece inside the box like structure. In the canvas, there are 10 holes, these holes have either a small mirror, or a self portrait.
