Celso González’s art is reflective and introspective and it honors his Loiceño and Rio Grande roots, where some of the magic that abounds in his compositions germinates. For this project Celso portrayed Iris Brown of Villa Africána Colobó in Norris Square, Philadelphia with her mother, Wencesla Hernández, and her grandmother, Monserrate Rivera, holding a pot of arroz con gandules.
About the Seed:
Sweet, smoky seasoning pepper especially popular in Puerto Rico, Venezuela, and throughout Latin America and the Caribbean. This is a mild habanero without the heat. Ají is an important ingredient in Puerto Rican sofrito (sauce), but is also eaten in salsas, salads, and roasted. For a sharper flavor, use the green fruits, and for softer flavors, use them when ripened red.
"El ají dulce es esencial para nuestro sofrito!!" –Iris Brown
