Patzcuaro is a place where, on a stroll down any street, one can encounter materials for my art. A venture into the market might yield woven reed mats, discarded produce trays or bottle caps. Parts of a broken vegetable steamer could become elements of an ornate ceremonial collar. My studio is filled with these 'raw materials'. A glue gun is a magic wand. Friends show up at the door bringing 'stuff'.
When I found myself in China. I was enthralled with both the strength and delicacy of ancient art. Chinese robes brought visions of opulence and ceremonies of times long gone. My "Vestiduras" reflect this fascination - creations of fantasy based on the richness of the past. Although China and Mexico are in different hemispheres, there are profound and ancient connections - highly developed tribal cultures are shared by both. Ancient Chinese expeditions are said to have sailed up the Rio Balsas as far as Uruapan in the Mexican state of Michoacan. I have combined Asian and historical Meso-American themes with my representations of Tribal Art.
