In the Shadow of Our Children – Frank Lopez-Motnyk
Acrylic on canvas
Statement from Frank Lopez-Motnyk:
This is your “big boy” chair. The one Mama put pillows on so you could sit at the table on Sundays with your Aunts and Uncles and Cousins. The one that Papa let you write your name on the back so we would know it was yours forever. Like the chair, you are in our memories forever.
The two paintings submitted are an amalgam of Retablo and Ofrenda styles to document the memory of two children in this time of Covid-19. These are fictitious children but are there to represent the many that have lost their lives to this disease.
