Submerged, hopes to create a discourse on the consequences of ecological disasters and the people affected. The works in this exhibition highlight the impact of catastrophic floods happening worldwide. Eliana Miranda draws inspiration from images and stories of climate migrants found in media outlets such as newspapers, journals, and internet articles. She uses color and the sketched line as mechanisms for underlining the ramifications of our ecological footprint and the transitory nature of human life. Her desire to continue to tell these stories through her own visual vocabulary is drawing attention and sparking conversation about this dire and pressing issue.
