"Tira y Afloja" (Tug of War)

Silkscreen
22″ x 30″

Being an immigrant is like a Tug of war. Like in the sport where two sides are set against each other in a test of strength when you uproot to a new place you are constantly negotiating between your past and your future. The dominant culture wants to assimilate you, while your heart knows that you already had a culture that made you who you are.
