With the support of a Fulbright-Garcia Robles Fellowship in 1997 and drawing inspiration from the pulp comic of the same name as well as the FM-3 Visa from Mexico, Tierra Brava traverses a personal psychological space within the color of a place mired in contradictions; the U.S. – Mexico border. It is a place that is in a constant search for its own sense of identity, juggling the traditions of culture and history of the interior with the pleasures and promises of prosperity and a better life of its northern neighbor. It is not Mexico and not the United States, but rather something and somewhere in-between.
