The Mexico Series-Series 20
Entering another culture is a positive, challenging experience, expecially if one intends to live it and call it home. While life in Mexico was more spontaneous and every day an adventure to control frustration, I needed to explore the deeper levels of these adopted roots. I wanted to get beyond the obvious richness of the landscape and the bolder colors, to find a truth and understanding that would parallel my own growth. I looked at fertility symbols and explored the images of prehispanic history. Layering color and abstraction became successful tools. Most of this series has not been exhibited in the USA and is in corporate and private collections in Mexico. Prints are available of most of the works in this series.
