[13 art pieces]
Reception: Saturday, June 7 from 6-9pm.
Grupo Puyakan Cumbia will be playing music!
I am showing work from my series "The Euphoric Dance of the Unconquered Mind" (heavy impasto, brightly colored oil paintings of danzantes, indigenous Mexican dancers. These paintings reflect the energy created by the dancers as a symbol of unity and mental strength. I am also introducing mixed-media paintings from my new series, "Footless Dancers." These paintings combine the energy of my previous work with lines from my poem “Footless Dancers” addressing indigenous resistance to European beliefs, values, and lifestyle.
