día de los muertos

Death is always next door, but lately it’s felt like the neighbors are coming over too often. Still, better to be hospitable than hostile: trying hard to stay friendly (if not too chummy) with those on the other side of the veil.

The night that John passed (I found out the next morning), I was at SomArts Cultural Center, installing some prints in the Ramp Gallery for their annual Day of the Dead exhibition curated by Rio and Rene Yañez. John’s death knocked me for a loop, so I didn’t have the bandwidth to post about this other project for a while.

It’s Día De Los Muertos today, so now’s as good a time as any to share these.
Ebony/Violets. For Ms McKinney and Mr Rogers Nelson.
