Marcos Sandoval Melchor

FOFA (Friends of Oaxacan Folk Art) Honorary Mention

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

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

Marcos grew up around woodcarving and art. His father and uncles carved, and Marcos began painting at the age of six. His energetic imagination is captured in this starryeyed rabbit with wings carved by his uncle. The rabbit’s face is hidden behind a jade mask, “a reminder that this whimsical creature is but a representative surface on which to paint one’s dreams.” Marcos painted Zapotec symbols like grecas on the chest of the rabbit, skulls for the god of death, and corn for life. On the animal’s wings we see a vibrant montage of patterns including images of the region’s folk art: black pottery, embroidery, and weaving.
