Determined to escape the financial struggle of her childhood in Chile, Liliana Wilson managed to get a law degree, and later immigrated to Texas in 1977 where she also studied art. After years of painting, she is considered she an important Latina artist. Her work deals with political repression, inequality, individual fear and despair. Liliana may be self-exiled from Chile, but she is still involved with its issues and political concerns. This book is not only a biography, but highlights some of the artist's most representative works.
