In this print, Delilah Montoya sheds light on a key facet of Latinx culture, the often-unrecognized role of the family matriarch. She reproduces a photograph of a multigenerational group of women. Mothers with small children crowd around the corner of a room under a small altar bearing a crucifix. According to the title, the photograph was taken at City Terrace, a predominantly Mexican American neighborhood in East Los Angeles. Living and working in a region that once was part of Mexico, the artist has written about creating art as a “Chicana in occupied America” and wanting to articulate “the experience of a minority woman.”
