Enjaulada (Jailed)

Silkscreen, chine collé, thread drawings
22″ x 30″

Enjaulada means jailed or captive in English. The image of a young girl reveals the harsh reality of her life. Peering through a “skeleton” of a skirt this structure symbolizes imprisonment as a female. Collaged, hand stitched pieces of paper outline the skirt, representing the child’s labor conditions across the border in the maquiladoras.
