Ana Mendieta

The work of this artist speaks to me very personally, as I feel the intentions of their work reflect a message I find very important to convey to humanity: that we are all part of this Earth. Humans tend to feel as though our lives are completely separate from nature; the way we physically live in man made structures and mentally dwell in our man made society. The theme that spoke loudest to me in Ana’s work are that of being one with nature, especially in death. We may feel disconnected from the natural world, but that is a completely false notion; nature is what constitutes our being. Especially in death, when we become nothing but our physical parts, are we united with natural materials and forces.
