Through an exhaustive investigation, with consumers of Peyote, including the Shamans; I conclude that the experience has different stages and intensities in terms of the effects, because each individual responds differently to these effects, but nevertheless, there is a common denominator among all; which is the hallucination stage, which is essentially one of the preponderant effects of Peyote; and it is in the trance of these hallucinations that the individual can see, hear and interact with a distorted reality, which can be both exciting and disturbing and it is in the middle of this experience that the "Close ups" arise. 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; it does not need frame and is ready to hang. ***This piece is painted using natural pigments from indigenous communities.

I am an abstract artist with a passion for minimalism and expressionism and it is through my work that I express what I cannot say in words. If I had the ability and eloquence to express its meaning, possibly I would not be a plastic artist but a writer of science fiction novels, although what I can say is everything that inspires and drives me to create what I do, I am passionate about geometry, structural engineering, modern architecture, functionalism, brutalism and deconstructivism, modernist furniture, textile, automotive, aeronautics and nautical design. Since I was a child I have had contact with popular arts, mainly "indigenous art", its simple designs but full of spiritual symbolism and its colors transport me to intangible places where my imagination unleashes. My work is the result of all this, perhaps for that reason I consider that it has a deep decorative vocation, however behind it there is an exhaustive research work through which I satisfy my intellectual need to justify it and support my ideas, although at the end what matters the least to me is whether the viewer understands it or can explain it academically, on the contrary, what matters most to me is how it impacts their senses and emotions.
