The "AMAPOLA" (Poppy flower) is essentially the sweetest symbol of the Huicholes´cosmology; and this flower has a different anatomy from the other; reason why is unique and unrepeatable, likewise; my "Amapolas Madre" are also pieces with unique identities and without a doubt part of the Happy World family, identifiable by the overlapped layer designs that characterize the peyotes and their different versions. The Amapola family includes circular pieces of MDF panels, as well as shaped on canvas similar to peyote hearts. Unlike Amapola core and Peyote core; the Amapola Madre is a more laborious piece because it is made of composite designs which together have a hyperdimensional effect.
I am inspired by the culture of the Huichol people, an indigenous population located in the center of Mexico, mainly in the states of Jalisco and Nayarit. Among many things, the Huicholes are characterized for the use and consumption of Peyote for religious purposes. Happy World Series, deals with the morphology and architecture of the peyote plant, as well as for its effects. At the same time, I re interpreted the aesthetics of the Huichol art, as the result of the effects of peyote. As in all I do; Geometry is still present in my work. Happy World comprises of Painting on latex, canvas, MDF board and Digital; also various types of sculptures, as well as installations.
Amapola Madre (Circular frame of 190 cmø x 6cm detph) and It is signed on the back.
***This piece is painted using natural pigments from indigenous communities.
