Painting: Acrylic, Spray Paint, Ink, Natural pigments on Wood.
This piece belongs to a series of original abstractions taken from existing original circular pieces. In this particular case; in addition to the subjet matter related to Huichol art and the application of geometry; I focused on decontextualizing the original pie that by abstracting it, and by choosing the ideal composition applied on a rectangular panel, I achieved a piece with an entire different identity from the original one.
As the original "Amapola Core", "this close up" is also an original mixed media painting made of MDF panel.
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.
It is signed on the back.
***This piece is painted using natural pigments from indigenous communities.
