“This picture represents the true essence of the borderlands in Arizona. This border fence in Agua Prieta and been painted by artists from Mexico and Arizona is rarely depicted as a place of peace, friendship and creation, rather the opposite and worse. Many of use view past the border fence and see nature and humanity, not merely a barrier. Creativity is always present in this place and it’s beautiful to witness the will of the artist claim this highly politicized border as a site for art practice.”
