The artist produced this pillow as he was dying from complications related to AIDS. Domestic linens appear prominently in Centurión’s earlier work as well: in the early 1990s he explored notions of beauty, sexuality, and femininity through a series of large painted or embroidered blankets. Towards the end of his life he began working on a smaller scale due to his weak and bedridden circumstances. These embroidered pillows and linens articulate the passion, desire, and despair of Centurión’s emotional and mental states at that time.
