Paper Maché

Paper Maché

alabrije

 

In 2001, while living in Cancun, Mexico, I had the opportunity to take a workshop on Alebrijes. We learned about the tradition and created our own colorful paper maché creatures. Since that time paper maché has been one of my favorite mediums, and Alebrije-inspired colors and patterns abound in my work. My masks, sculpture, reliefs and the Odd Bird series all trace their roots back to that first workshop in the Casa de Cultura.

I’ve moved the masks to their own page.
