The Skin of Angeles (“La Piel de los Angeles”)
Project info

The idea for the Skin of Angeles came to me when I learned family secrets and fell into a depression. To take control of the turmoil I felt inside, I created these images. These secrets are told in a story of nude Angels with wings. People that we believe are perfect (like angels, God’s perfect creatures) can also carry secrets. Often we are unable to share these secrets with anybody. Over the years, they overwhelm us while we pretend that all is well and we keep holding our wings until they give us the freedom to fly and find our way in life.
