“Morazán Hilvanando Colores,” 2013. Fiber collaboration at Walls of Hope in Perquín, El Salvador. Victoria Martinez is standing with a group of women around a large textile on the floor. The textile is composed of different rectangular fabric pieces of varying vibrant colors that have a range of geometric patterns painted onto them. The piece was collaboratively made by the artists and these women, who have experience with war in El Salvador, from being nurses at war to having relatives to past survivors.
