Urban Orishas Series: Urban Lemanjá

Urban Orishas Series: Urban Orisha is artistic and cultural research about the force of nature (Orisha) in urban centers.

Through the wisdom and context of African and Indigenous Brazilian traditions, these natural forces can be recognized in any metropolis.  Luz Castaneda seeks the setting of Manhattan to capture iconic images: Wall Street, the 911 Memorial, the IBM Building on Madison Avenue, historical periods, and architecture throughout the City and render alternative meanings.  These paintings, as a part of a larger body of work, reflect the sacred and mundane worlds that coexist in the grand landscape of modernity.
