Paper Boat Sculpture ( white )
Limited edition all on white paper boat inside a caoba Woden box like the Cuban cigars Cohiba cover in a mix media design representing my journey.
The paper boat is the beginning of the trip. This goes back to my childhood. Growing up in Cuba, week after week, when I went back to school, another chair was empty. Another classmate had fled, on his way to the United States or elsewhere. In my imagination, I began to see those empty chairs like paper boats, thinking of my friends and their families, building a boat to pursue their dreams. In this collection, that's what the paper boat represents: the dream or dreams that we create for ourselves.
