Our first addition to a collection aimed at the reconstruction of Puerto Rico. It is titled "Trabajo En La Isla Del Encanto", meaning "work in the Island of Enchantment" was donated by artist and philanthropist, Chance Rovski . Following the devastation of Hurricane Maria, efforts to restore quality of life have been painfully slow. More than half of a year has gone by and there are still many parts of the island that do not have consistent access to electric power. What they do have is the power of the resilient residents represented by the deteriorating power-pole in the left mid-ground of the work, as if it were a mere memory to the worker with his back turned to the past.
The damaged electrical system is surrounded by the rubble of architecture that was once a monument of a vibrant culture and history. For now, a tranquil sky blankets a placid oceanic horizon. This facade of meteorological peace is fleeting, as hurricane season will soon be upon the island once again.
