The Desapariencia series speaks to issues of women in the world. Early in her career as an artist, Mabel toured the female penitentiaries in Cuba where was impacted by the silk flowers the women made as part of a labor program. That such objects of beauty could be born within this harsh environment showed the resilience and the enduring power of beauty. Often, women are put in a shallow prison in which looks are the only thing that matters, reduced to being a pair of legs or hair for a brain and disappearing as a human being. The Desapariencia (disappearance) series builds a body of provocative imagery using mosaics made up of plastic flowers as an homage to the ladies who inspired her.
