Peyote Eye is a synthesized version of God´s Eyes, which by the way, is one of the most representative figures of Huichol art, it is older and therefore more polular than handcrafts covered with beads. In general, the God´s is made with a light wooden structure and covered with colored threads. This is my own reinterpretation, something distant and at the same time similar to the artisan aesthetic of the Huichol art.
I found MDF board a great medium to work on, so in this particular case I decided to use MDF instead of canvas.
Happy World is entirely 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.
"Currently in exhibition, until the 6th of July".
