According to the artist, the serial panels in this work can be arranged in any order or configuration.
Throughout her career Sanchez has turned repeatedly to female warriors for inspiration. The title Troyanas invoke the legendary women of Troy, and their inner strength while mourning the loss of their land. Formally, the serial panels are meant to evoke lines of female warriors standing together as one powerful unit or army, highlighting the collective power of women. The black and white palette of this work especially succeeds in accentuating the visual quality of the shaped forms.
