Dulce Abril Fuentes Gomez

FOFA (Friends of Oaxacan Folk Art) Winner Decorative Painting Woodcarving

FOFA “Honorando nuestra raices, explorando nuestros sueños, 2016”

Made with Copal wood, woodcarving technique gouges, machete and sandpaper, decorated with acrylic paintings.

Dulce painted this piece – carved by her father Efrain Fuentes – to express how much she values her Zapotec heritage. For example, the face of a Zapotecan person appears in the heart. Traditions arise from the seed. The skulls are our ancestors. She also included a variety of traditional dancers from the Guelaguetza dance festival – the China Oaxaqueña, Zandunga, and Flor de Piña – whose brilliant-colored costumes she loves. In addition to traditional themes, Dulce is fascinated by the marine animals she includes in the veins of the heart. She began painting at nine years of age, taught by her mother how important decorative painting is to the impact of a carved work of art.
