Guardian Saint

San Ramón, a guardian saint, became a very popular religious image in Mexico. People still appeal to his image on the laminated prayer card sold by peddlers, asking San Ramon to send a spell designed to stop malicious gossips. Using the prayer found on the back of the laminated prayer card, the person prays . One then asks San Ramon to silence a particular gossip or a group of gossips, and then one takes chewing gum to glue a coin over the saint's mouth. The coin symbolizes shutting the gossips up. One then lights a candle and sets it next to the image on one’s altar or in some place where it will not be disturbed while the flame of fate transmits the light of our prayers, as curanderas do.

Guardian Saint

32" x 56-1/2" unframed (original)
Acrylic, oils, spray enamel, terra cotta marker, oil paint stick, glass beads, clear glue, wood skewers, feathers, and aluminum foil, on canvas

I slathered together my own San Ramon saint to block harsh words towards me wherever they came from. I crowned him King Trash, my Guardian Saint, as I attached feathers and skewers. King Trash regards others as less than human, as disposable beings, but he commands. Many regard him as a saint of the nether world. They bow before his power. I worked to find him so I could seal his mouth with a pattern he couldn't bite through and let me work with trash as I bricolaged the many shapes that emerge from formlessness.
