“Americana” is the feminine conjugation in spanish of “american”. Americana personifies the feminine dimension of a word that represents a continent. The initial reticulated intention is broken by the organic movement of the hand. I wanted to write a word charged with meaning and through the repetition dilute the particularity of the term.
