Artwork Description
Description
Aztec Goddess of fertility.
Artwork encased within black resin frame.
Collection Statement
Día de Muertos is one of my favorite Mexican celebrations of life after death.

Throughout my artistic practice I have developed a number of works related to Día de Muertos; original artwork, guided workshops, public installations and live performances.

My Día de Muertos mixed media illustrations are a continuation of a personal narrative that I had created over the last decade. I use calacas, or skeletons, to portray human activities: such as experiencing live music, riding in vintage cars, and dancing at night clubs. I use different mediums to create 2D and 3D pieces: clay, wire, wood boxes, found objects, watercolor pencils and acrylics.

In Seattle, Día de Muertos festivities have gained much popularity. I was one of the first organizers with La Casa de las Artes, that sadly not longer exist, to be included part of the Festival since 2001. Around that time I had the opportunity to collaborate on creating sandpainting or ‘tapetes’ with other Latinx artists at Seattle Art Museum, Seattle Asian Art Museum and Seattle Center.
