Ecoline Dye-Ink and Assorted Beads on Canvas – 2022 – By Bati Cruz

“Letter Girl” is a cute and simple painting of an anonymous, faceless girl in a beautiful red dress. Her only facial features are red lips, and single sequin representing her cheek. The random letters that pass her by could be a myriad of ways to spell different names, but we don’t know what her name is. She has no face. She is anonymous. But at the end, Letter Girl wishes us love with the Spanish words “Te Amo” meaning “I love you.”
