Lotería Mexicana, 2019
Oil & Acrylic on canvas
79 x 98 inches

A Game that goes back to medieval Italy in the 15th century, adapted by the French Clemente Jacques in 1887, the cards represent Mexican society and its characters. It is a game that lost popularity over time, but it continues to be a legendary tradition in the collective memory.

Yellows, blues, and reds fall like playing cards on the canvas, exploding into abstract images that transport me to the game.
