Pozivenec notes the relationship they share between life and death in their work. “We all have a common attempt to express both the subtleties and confrontation of our relationship to death as individuals and as a society and culture,” she says. “Between the three of us, we spanned work in community, on the streets, and in the forest, all for similar intent.”
Franco makes a similar observation, reflecting that she was "Inspired by their artistry and thoughtful production," adding, "I enjoyed learning about their creative process and what motivates them to express themselves."
By the end of the night, the glasses are empty, but the conversation keeps stirring, from swapping ideas on different methods to enlightening each other on various media, the three walk away together learning that there’s never any limitation in expressing the intricacies of life and death. The dialogue will continue and manifest in creations yet to come. The photographer, the maskmaker, and the papier-mâché artist all exit together as a newly formed community brought together by their common love for creating art to celebrate Día de Los Muertos.
