The Stars are Not: Put Out Every One; is reflected from Goya’s The Disasters of War, Plate 80. Plate 80: Si resucitará? (Will she live again?) The figure is "Truth.” A woman is shown lying on her back, bathed in a halo of light before a gathering mob of hooded monks, while a masked figure beats the ground with a weapon.

The Stars are Not: Put Out Every One; the mob is quiet, lost confused and stuck while trying to mourn. With generational grief from several unacknowledged genocides and oppression, I wonder if a mutual narrative will be found and mourned. Or if “Truth” will continue to be suppressed.
