This piece is from the series PORTRAITS FROM FUTURES PAST. It is a manipulated digital photograph of a pre Hispanic figurine that was photographed in Mexico. This print was made and then the manipulated file was deleted. The print was then painted with acrylic paints and brush pens. Next I created the frame using recycled materials and inspired by the folk art I have seen all over Mexico and central America.
I have visited these figurines many times in museums all over Mexico. They always strike me as very powerful and ancient and futuristic at the same time. I did not want to document them but rather hop on, climb inside and see where they might take me.
