Ancient Motif

The online format presented the opportunity to revisit several pieces I have shown previously through Saratoga Arts, alongside new pieces which are a progression of the exploration of the same motif: artifacts and legends of the ancient Americas. Part of the exploration involves searching for materials and technique variations which can materialize a contemporary vision of this ancient cultural heritage. Since my sculptures always start with a series of studies and sketches, I included some of them to share this part of the process.

The show “Ancient Motif” is once again an homage to the cultural groups of the ancient Americas, thanking them for the vast array of artifacts such as petroglyphs, pottery and sculptures which are part of their legacy to all humanity.
