“Oil Over Troubled Water” is a window display by Texas-based artist Jesus Treviño that takes a closer look at transgenerational histories, experiences, and collective and long-term trauma in relation to his personal experience.

The title refers to the calming effect that a drop of oil has on water as it spreads over the surface. This display includes a vessel made of soy candle wax that holds water from the Rio Grande River as well as various “Resacas,” former outlets of the River. This material is meant to invoke and commemorate the land as well as carry a wishful gesture to alleviate tension surrounding the Borderlands.

The sculpture will inform, supplement, and create a safe space for stories to be shared in the form of painting that is also composed of and affected by the symbolic material held within the vessel.

Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display until November 28.
