The Throne, 2013
Repurposed gold-leafed chair, mixed media, acrylic
36 x 36 x 25.5 in.
The golden throne is adorned with brown nymphs and cherubs and a silk handmade cushion with an image of a Spanish galleon (antique velvet painting) sewn to it. All of these subtle and not-so subtle images point to questions about Latino dignity, power, and authority in the US.
