Ink mixed with holy water. Cotton paper, plastic figurine
This drawings were created with a nebulizer that atomizes the mix of ink and holy water that’s inside the plastic vessels with the shape of Saint Judas Tadeo, patron of lost causes and very popular amongst prostitutes and thieves in Mexico. By drawing with a “mist” created by the nebulizer, there is not such thing as control in what will appear, more like a revelation image of the moment of its creation. This results in a series of halos on the surface, an allusion to holy imagery that accidentally appears and are venerated by those who see them as divine intervention.
