About The Artwork

Considered the original Nahuatl tzapotl and also known by the Mayans as tauch, the black sapote is a fruit that is green on the outside and has a dark red, almost black pulp on the inside, popularly consumed in pre-Hispanic times. The black sapote, which at first glance can be disconcerting due to the color of its pulp, is actually a sweet fruit with a creamy texture, with a consistency similar to that of chocolate mousse. Its flavor reminds us of caramel and without a doubt, it is a food with many nutritional benefits and medicinal properties. ZAPOTE MADRE is an artwork inspired by the endemic fruit of Mexico, which I reinterpret by applying a palette of red, orange and magenta in a gradient composition to represent the texture of the fruit. The piece is made up of two half circles of MDF and wood measuring 220 cm x 110 cm each. I name MOTHERS to the artworks that due to their size and design are the origin of a family within the series. Note: The colors shown in the artwork may vary depending on the device from which they are observed form.

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.
