Details

Working in the folk art tradition passed down by Mexico's Otomi people, Edgar Trejo creates a wonderful rectangular composition. Edgar Trejo works with natural amate, or tree bark paper, which takes several days to procure through a complex process. Amate was a sacred material for Aztec and Mayan peoples, historically used to write down and chronicle important events and trade, even serving as the bridge between the mortal and the spiritual worlds during religious ceremonies. According to Otomi traditions, the bark used to produce amate can only be extracted from a tree during certain parts of the lunar cycle, indicating the high level of respect held toward nature. Featuring a meticulous freehand design, the artwork features circular patterns that flank a central diamond. Hand-painted motifs in vegetable dyes surround handwoven sections.
