Indigena - Ester Hernandez
Indigena
Description

From the Artist:

My print "Indigena" is based on an ancient pre-Columbian design from Mexico. It was originally created on clay. I have always been drawn to and fascinated with Mexican-Indian designs that were a part of everyday life-from the functional to spiritual. They could be found on everything from a spoon to a temple. Their beauty of line, form, and ability to abstractly capture feelings, emotions, and ideas visually is truly an inspiration for me. By re-creating & re interpreting this image, I feel a relationship with the original artist and that I am keeping their idea alive in another time & space. It is my way of honoring, sharing and keeping their idea alive in another time and spaces it is my way of honoring sharing and keeping alive my cultural heritage locked and loaded.
