In “Layers” installations, Estela explored the nouns of place, class, and gender, through mixed media collages. In “Clase” 2016- 17, all currencies found in South America and The Caribbean are lined and invaded by American currency planes. In “Mujer”, Peruvian textiles are mimicked by found vintage cooking books and the hand is constructed out of Lorca’s all-women play “The House of Bernarda Alba”. Lastly, in “Mapa” 2016-17, She constructed an imaginary map using topographical lines of the Dominican Republic, sand, and found maps juxtaposed with found statistics of employment throughout Latin America. By placing screens in front, but not adjacent to, these collages of gender, place, and gender, the work she highlighted abstract ideas of power.
