“Con Cariño” is an investigation of the natural tension between loss and healing. Humor and heartbreak are juxtaposed in imagery that feels both familiar and foreign. Strange characters and common objects are steeped in cultural iconography and playful phrases that create dissonance. But rather than a sheepish chuckle in an awkward situation, this work is meant to be tongue-in-cheek in the face of pain.
