The Guardian, oil on canvas, 40”x 40”, 2023.

“The Guardian” depicts two male twin figures, symbolic representations rather than literal portrayals of myself and my nanny, Carmen. The artwork delves into cherished childhood memories, portraying Carmen as my unwavering protector and constant companion. She stood as my rock amidst life’s turbulence, and this piece encapsulates her profound influence. The inclusion of the rooster, laden with symbolism, anchors a poignant narrative within the intricate layers of my past. —Angela Ales
