In this piece of work, the artist gives new life, through a sculpture, to a ham holder from her home beneath the waters, a white fork with two water tubes, a circular cut piece of wood, and a mason’s wool from the new home that gave them shelter.
According to popular legend, dreaming about handing out ham to your guests at a party means that you are a generous and abundant person who easily makes new friends. This is represented in this sculpture “Abundance” through a ham holder as a centerpiece that symbolizes the abundance of a fertile valley and the generosity of its people with their crops. In the artist’s house, as in other houses, they slaughtered the pig. A family feast centered around this delicacy, making use of virtually every part.
The ham owner wants to remind you that the first person you should be generous to is yourself.
It is for this reason that the fork alludes to the focus. What do you want? The artist wants the history of her village not to be forgotten.
The mason’s key refers to the meaning of non-submission, freedom. You don’t have to be something you don’t want to be. Following a herd that doesn’t identify with you just to avoid being singled out says a lot about you. Don’t be afraid to hurt with your words because the only one you hurt is yourself. You swallow and swallow until the point where sadness engulfs you, and your face fades. The word doesn’t want to be a prisoner, and sooner or later, you will release it to achieve your goal, peace. It will be then when you will iron out your mind from all the beliefs that made you a prisoner, and you will be free.
And the circular wood symbolizes the door of time. The color represents the present, and the translucent represents the past..
In a fast and impatient world, the mirror serves as the artist’s perfect ally to anchor you in the moment, unveiling the uniqueness in every face.
Her reflection after creating the sculpture “Abudance”:
“The world is drawn by feeling.”
