Street-Memorial replicates the neighborhood tributes made to commemorate those who have passed away. The work stems from a recent body of work inspired by the human toll, particularly among communities of color, caused by systemic neglect during the coronavirus pandemic. Building on the visual lexicon of Pop Art, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, and European still life painting, Hierro’s digital collage positions cellophane-wrapped flowers in a triangular frame around a plastic crate. Nestled atop and beside these objects are lit votive candles, an empty Hennessy bottle, a Hail Mary prayer card, and a figurine of Saint Joseph holding the Child Jesus. By highlighting such ubiquitous yet symbolic items, the artist speaks to her own multidimensional experience while calling for the remembrance of lost souls.
