Mexican Folk Catholiscim


When I think of religion, I am driven to reflect on the nature of Catholicism in Mexico, from its temples and cathedrals to its streets and locales, in my home country, religious convictions rise above the walls of the ecclesiastic space to permeate  the most common of environments becoming a great visual presence in the everyday life of its inhabitants regardless of spiritual affiliations. 


The works that make up El Folklore y la Fé (Folklore and Faith),epitomize the presence of saints and virgins as main characters in the Mexican landscape I often yearn for despite my personal conflicts with institutionalized religion.  Hence, the images contained in the three bodies of work come from a space of questioning as well as a sense of admiration for the objects and spaces I perceive as relics that transform the landscape through implied mythologies.
