Visions From The Inside (2016)

Artist statement: “This year I am deeply inspired by other POC comic book artists/illustrators to use comics as a way to create authentic stories that are highly political and personal. The black and white comic is a short series of panels that illustrate a migrant woman painting the U.S. flag while she shares an inner monologue; which comes directly from Rodriguez who is currently detained at Hudson County Correctional County in New Jersey. Then a hand with a cuff that reads as “ICE” stretches to grab the woman’s face to represent the anti-migrant sentiments and policies that remove a person’s sense of belonging to the U.S.” -Breena Nuñez
