Self-Portraits: Surviving Anxiety is a series of self-portraits in drawing that explores notions of mental and emotional strain. It approaches compulsion and repetition. The flower Marpacífico (Red hibiscus) appears and disappears in the landscape of the drawings. Marpacífico grows wild on the streets of Cuba in which Romagoza grew up. For her, it symbolizes beauty, femininity, and independence. Yali Romagoza is searching within her Cuban heritage those elements that keep her empowered.
