About the work

In her exploration of the theme of Reclamation, the artwork Luna y Sol by Sueey Gutierrez delves into the celestial dynamics of Ixchel and Itzamna, drawing from mythological narratives of compromise, liberation, and resilience amid the dusk and dawn. Symbolizing the transition from night to day, the piece embodies the intricate interplay between the Maya deities Ixchel (Moon) and Itzamna (Sun). As Ixchel ascends to the heavens to reunite with Itzamna, she confronts his possessive and fiery nature. Their agreement to meet during the transitional moments between day and night emphasizes their commitment to maintaining harmony, ensuring equilibrium between their realms and their marriage. This artwork reflects the theme of Reclamation by empowering and revisiting essential narratives of agency.
