Artist statement: "Trujillo's second large format artist book, ‘Trouble’ (2021) is a continuation of stories and images that bring the Chicano perspective of culture, family, and food to the table.

"Sketched from memory, the stories about youth grab on to singular moments when adolescent skill sets are just enough to skirt trouble. Set in 1970's Vallejo, California, Trujillo interweaves the culture of food with recipes and domestic lessons that form identity.

"Both of Trujillo's books ‘Funeral Food’ (2019) and ‘Trouble’ (2021). Both editions were printed by Impronta Casa Editora in Guadalajara, Mexico - a traditional printing workshop that specializes in intertype & fine art letterpress processes for small artistic publications."

By Sandra Trujillo

Sandra Trujillo: " I received a grant to work in Mexico and the work culminated in an artists' book ... with the assistance of Impronta Casa Editora in Guadalajara, Mexico. Impronta Casa Editora specializes in small artistic productions using rare vintage 19th century intertype and letterpress printing processes. ... The printed graphics in the book are toned Risographs prints of paper collages ... with a cover aesthetic inspired by experiences and trends of printing in Mexico today and rare 19th century portfolios.

"The book presents stories about a youth, familial connection to food, and creative and thrifty-minded individuals. The collection of stories is sketched from memory with an idea to reveal intimate connections between families and urban domestic experiences.

"My goal for FUNERAL FOOD was two-fold: 1) to pay tribute to a diverse community of good cooks; and 2) to talk about thrifty economies (material culture) within California Chicano culture in the 1970's. FUNERAL FOOD is both simple to read and on first read funny. But the undercurrent of the book is about economy and a family skating on the edge of poverty. The stories celebrate the cultural foods and people of my youth and illuminate overwhelming acts of generosity. I tried to create sensations about food and negotiate the uncanny circumstance for abundance (funeral gifts). "
