Historical Context:
"My first contact with printmaking was on the streets of Mexico City where 'Her Soul' is constantly portrayed in handmade posters glued on any surface available. My favorite of these images were the ones created by ìel movimientoî, or the grass roots movement. I loved the bold expressive lines of their relief prints and the aggressiveness that spoke of social injustice. Later I learned about the close relationship between printmaking and social movements around the world, which has helped to shape my own artistic language. I create art to help me understand and assimilate my everyday life tribulations." - Alynn Guerra
