In this piece the winding red thread is part of a ribbon of color, changing from red, white, and green to red, white, and blue, representing the flags of Mexico and the United States. The monarch butterflies are a symbol of migration, and they alight in Marisol's hair and frame her in gold. The familiar and comforting pattern of a colorful serape is abstracted in the background. Perhaps threads of fate also tie us to the places we call home, both past and present. This is acrylic and oil paint with gold leaf on gallery canvas.
