About the Book
LUCIA MENDEZ and her "beings":
to celebrate the mystery. to trace the sacred outlines of an offering, steal and fire. to plead, using all the extremities of the body, with a stare that will soon explode in trances and prayers. to elongate faith until it dominates the violent margins. perhaps, that is the purpose. maybe, that is why she paints strong women, like old roots and rites, that bring forth the power of the Afro-Caribbean spirituality, as well as the ancestral knowledge that reclaim spaces free from the prejudiced eye and the misery of our everyday lives.
