Inspired by pre and post colonial and contemporary iconographic imagery and adornment specific to Central America and the Latin diaspora, Suárez plays dress ups in an attempt to carve a space for herself between the multiple histories of her ancestry.
She highlights the tension between the domestic and the divine; the domestication of the eroticised brown savage woman and the pure and noble third world anonymous woman, victim to the male warlords, on the cover of the National Geographic.
