Vision At La Puente by daniel cautrell

This is an original linoleum print that I created for a Dia De Los Muertos Exhibition. It was inspired by a visit to a old historical cemetery during a 4th of July celebration. There were kids climbing all over the head stones and there were some strobe flashing fireworks going off and everything was illuminated and the children’s shadows were being cast against the stones and envisioned that those who were buried there were somehow aware of the activity and, in fact, the dead were gathered together to celebrate the living. Dia De Los Muertos, or Day Of The Dead, is a celebration by the living to welcome back the dead. I have studied the origins of this Mexican Holiday and subscribe to some of it’s tenants; that there are times when the dead walk among us.
