HOMAGE TO WILFREDA LOPEZ FLORES:
A MULTIMEDIA INSTALLATION
Homage to Wilfreda López Flores (Homenaje a Wilfreda López Flores) is a tribute to Ms. Luna’s deceased grandmother who was an accomplished artist in Guatemala. Ms. López Flores was a passionate and creative artist who expressed her internal world principally through the gravure. The result: scenes rich in fantastic images, personages that are almost mythical, and tight compositions rich in textures with very little free space. Utilizing her grandmother’s linoleum-cut images filled with zoomorphic primitivism, Ms. Luna transforms the traditional into the hi-tech by using the contemporary medium of computer graphics along with her own personal imagery. It is also a journey back towards her past, family bonds and ancestors. Two generations (grandmother and granddaughter), three different cultures (North American, Guatemalan and Mayan), and two female artists coming together through art, giving us a better understanding of our incredible cultural diversity.
