More Than That
Clay pottery & acrylic paint
Piece for SAY Sí


Apart from statistical information, Latin American history in Toronto doesn't talk much about the different cultural experiences of immigrants. And sadly, this void of information is often filled by mainstream media depictions of Latinos.

I want to change this bias to actually reflect the variety of people that make up the Canadian Latino community. This piece is inspired by the artisanal pottery culture of Latin American countries. Painted using the colours of the 12 South American flags, the faces on the plate emphasize Latino diversity. Each of us are a collection unique customs, traditions and histories that deserve to be acknowledged.

Why?

Because we’re more than just stereotypes.
