"Latin Humpty Dumpty jumped over the wall,
Latin Humpty Dumpty had many setbacks.
Neither the obstacles he faced, nor all the men who opposed him,
could defeat Latin Humpty Dumpty. "
The recycled aspect of the glass weaves together fragments of stories in a cyclical movement of generational memories. As a hybrid expression, the past is incorporated in vibrant and energetic patterns coming together as one. Lopez fuses these ideas into his handiwork, creating space for healing and progression on an individual and collective level.
Latin Humpty Dumpty shines brightly, illuminating a perception of strength and optimism in the immigrant experience rather than defeat and loss. Rising above the wall, the Latin individual learns to overcome struggles by integrating themselves as ways to move forward in life with strength, joy and integrity
