Peyote Seed was the first piece that became reality of all the whole series, and somehow it became the aesthetic referent and start point from which it develops all the characters that build the Happy World series. Peyote Seed contains simple but forceful geometric elements, which defined the aesthetic discourse through which I could safely let the imagination fly without the risk of losing the aesthetic foundation of Huichol art.
As I mentioned before; 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.
