Jorge González, Toali (study), 2020
Lampblack drawing on fabric
7 × 9 inches

Toali, an ongoing series of drawings, is named after the 3-pointed Taíno carved stones used to acknowledge ancestral spirits and act as offering for crop cultivation. The drawings representing these carved stones are made from lampblack, ​a black pigment made from soot, harvested by the artist and​ refer to photographic documentation made by archaeological investigations of the Caribbean in the early 20th century.
