Description He didn't have enough money for a trip to the florist, so he went outside and found an abundance of wildflowers. When he gave them to her, she loved them even more than store bought flowers. She displayed them in the entryway, where everyone could see them as soon as they entered the house.
Juan Garcia, Binghamton, NY Member Since July 2010 Artist Statement I grew up in extreme poverty in Santo Domingo. By necessity, people in countries like the Dominican Republic have a close affiliation with the rhythyms of the natural world. Survival often depends on understanding this world, respecting its power, and living in harmony with it. When I came to the United States many years ago, I was surprised at how few people possess a similar lifestyle. My art reflects the simplicity of nature, and my strong desire to live a natural life.
