Although the AMAPOLA (Poppy) is a flower, and that apparently has nothing to do with the Peyote; There is an interrelation in mystical terms, in which many Indigenous of Mexico use them for their religious purposes. In Happy World I wanted to interrelate the poppy and the peyote, because both are a means to reach this spiritual state, which open the portal of transcendence. The Amapola (poppy) is also present in this series, which I decide to represent in a more playful and elegant way, but respecting the composition and visual aesthetics of all the characters that are part of it. Unlike the Peyote Roots, Amapola Root Madre is distinguished by its more defined designs patterns, with less saturation of colors, and applying with solid colors. This piece measures 230 cm ø in its extremes and a length of 510 cm and 6 cm depth, divided into two panels of 255 cm in length each. This piece is the largest of the series and was conceived to be complemented by Amapola Core Madre to have the possibility of assembling a very large size diptych between both pieces.
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.
