Justin Favela: Re/Presenting México: José María Velasco & the Politics of Paper

Re/Presenting México is a culmination of Favela's years of exploration into the oeuvre of Velasco's nationalist paintings, originally created throughout the second half of the 19th century. With his signature piñata technique, Favela creates a series of paper mosaics that transform the naturalism of Velasco's works as abstractions of color, simultaneously denying the propagandistic qualities that the Mexican painter originally intended.
