About The Artwork

This is the playful representation of the Peyote Roots. Continuing with the aesthetic discourse of the series, I applied the cylindrical shape with which I reinforce the foundation of the Huichol art, which it centers on circles and overlapping lines to represent the infinite universe; In the same way, I reinterpreted that idea applying the same technique I used in peyote hearts and peyote root cuts. The peyote root is undoubtedly the most dramatic piece of the whole series, not only for its format but for the continuous and prolonged visual poetry. This particular piece is an original mixed media painting made on canvas divided into two panels of 260 cm in length and a diameter of 135 cm at each end; and it may grow by inserting a third panel between the two existing ones, and it can be of the desired length at the buyer's request, which will come with extra cost. To be able to make this series come alive; I went through and exhaustive research of Huichol people, and I got inspired by their arts and culture. Huicholes are 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. ***This piece is painted using natural pigments from indigenous communities.

My approach to the arts began at the age of six with the study of piano and fine arts. As a teenager I got involved in theater and in that context I discovered scenography and stage production which ended up shaping the worldview of my “artist self.” I studied architecture and for a short time I worked as a set designer and later I found my passion for cultural management, an area in which I discovered my vocation as an administrator, maker, creator, executor, and organizer, which would ultimately serve as a foundation for structuring my career as artist. After years of resistance I returned to the plastic arts and immersed myself in the study of the popular arts of Mexico as well as the analysis of the uses and customs of various indigenous peoples, focusing my interest on the visual aesthetics of their crafts, clothing, as well as its spiritual worldview and its symbolism at the same time that my passion for modern architecture and industrial, textile, furniture and automotive design gave life to a peculiar way of seeing art. My work is the reflection of all the above, it is the encounter of possibilities, the consequence of my desire to amalgamate concepts and styles that are often antagonistic to each other and of my interest in everything that does not have to be explained but rather felt, it is the encounter of the indigenous with the modern, the ancestral and the present, the abstract imagination with spatial formality, they are the celebration of my own meaning of being myself.
