The weepers (Las Plañideras)
For Celesteprize I have prepared a triptych of Mantillas showing different expressions of pain; the pain we feel but do not express. I wish we could have the thousands of weepers to cry for us.
This work was inspired by the poem:
"No man is an island, entire of itself;
every man is a piece of the continent,
a part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less,
as well as if a promontory were,
as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were:
any man's death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind,
and therefore never send to know
for whom the bells tolls;
it tolls for thee."
